dWAR


dWAR

Is a player's dW scaled up or down based upon his actual games played? Said differently - if a player has a +0.4 dW score but only played in 40 games in his reference season, will he prevent hits at the same rate as a fielder who has a +1.6 dW but had 160 games played?

Thanks!

Re: dWAR

It's a cumulative stat just like WAR, eccept for defense.

Re: Re: dWAR

So does it get scaled up (or down) in the sim if the player had achieved his dW while only playing a portion of the season?

Re: dWAR

dWar is not scaled according to games played. And, it's not a cumulative stat.

dWar determines the percentage of hits a player can turn into outs (for a positive dWar) or an out into a hit (if a negative dWar).

If a player has a plus 2 dWar, that player will turn 2% of hits into outs.
2% is not the proper math, but that's the proper concept. A percentage of successful outcomes based on the stats is not considered cumulative.

A player's dWar is the same on every pitch thrown, and the same whether the player is playing pitch one of Game 1 or the final pitch of Game 162

Re: Re: dWAR

I did not articulate my question properly.

Player A (actual reference season stats, not the simulated/compiled ones): SS with 40 games played / 160 AB / +0.4 dW

Player B : SS with 160 games played / 640 AB / +1.6 dW

Are those equivalent in terms of the impact on preventing hits in the sim on a per game played basis?

Re: Re: dWAR

Raging - I'm talking about the real-life statistic, not the Pennant Chase application of it.

This might explain it better: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defen..

Re: dWAR

Biener, no. Whatever the dwar is in no matter how many games, that’s what is represented here.

Re: Re: dWAR

Player B has 4x the dwar at all times, in the sim. That is true no matter how many games either plays, and it will not change during the season.

A player's games played has no influence on dWar. A player with 50 games played and a plus one Dwar will always be treated, by the sim, exactly the same as a player with 162 games played and a plus one dWar. They are always treated, by the sim, as identical defensive players.

Re: dWAR

I don't disagree, I was under the impression that he wanted to know where the stat came from - not how it works in the PC game engine. Sorry for the confussion.

Re: Re: dWAR

Yes, cumulative in terms to how its calibrated in Real Life.
Its then translated to a Real Stat here, where that gives a player the same % of possibility of robbing a hit every time their in the simulated game.
The resulting D+ in Team and Individual Stat lines is the cumulative amount of hits robbed minus the number hits allowed (misplays, aside from errors).
