Quick Question


Quick Question

I hope I'm not posting on the boards too much, but I had a quick questions.

I know that dWAR is highly valuable on this site, especially high dWAR shortstops. What is a dWAR for a shortstop that will make a considerable difference in the outcome of games?

Re: Quick Question

i play in a custom best teams league and all the ss leaders in d plus have a dwar 3 and above. one thing iv'e noticed is that when you look at team stats and rank the teams for d plus its almost exactly the same correlation to the team era leaders

Re: Re: Quick Question

Thanks, this is the only place I've ever seen which takes into account defense so heavily. I'm trying to figure out how to maneuver it.

Re: Quick Question

I will take that comment as a badge of honor. :)

I think around 2+ becomes pretty valuable. I suspect others who have studied the impact will have some opinions.

I also definitely dislike having a negative dwar SS because it opens the door to a game-losing play, especially with SS getting a lot of action.

Re: Re: Quick Question

Agreed on the Dwar value Guy, but the algorithm that decides the FA Supplemental draft needs to be tweaked to consider that then doesn't it?

Re: Re: Quick Question

It's most certainly a badge of honor. Nick Ahmed has been a beast on my Diamondbacks team defensively, and I'm seeing a +2 dWAR pattern too.
