    Not really. Though it also serves as a method of balancing out positional scarcity, it's really to adjust for the differences in difficulty of playing each position.

    See, X is X because of Y. If it weren't for the fact that SS is much harder to play than 1B, then there wouldn't be a lot more human beings that are able to play 1B as opposed to SS.

    1B is full of great hitters partly because defense isn't nearly as important there, so you can afford a big bat and a crap glove. Not the case at short. Plus, as pointed out above, there are a lot fewer players capable of manning SS...hence the reason you have so many who are average or worse at the plate.

    Fair enough? But 3b is lower on the defensive spectrum than 2b or CF, so why is it lumped in with them. Is the difference really considered that small?

    Well, the defensive spectrum, when originally created, while very good and a great step to valuing players, is very arbitrary and subjective. We shouldn't really base everything off of it.

    It doesn't really matter where the offense is coming from, but it does matter where your good defenders come from. That's kind of how I think of it.

    Allright - I know I've seen a list of averages of the Tra+ a pitcher should have

    Example:

    If the pitcher is an ace he should have between X and Y Tra+


    I believe it was from statcorner but I can't find it anywhere so I need help

    #1 SP = tRA+ of 118 or higher, the average #1 has a 130 tRA+.
    #2 SP = tRA+ from 106 to 117, the average #2 has a 112 tRA+.
    #3 SP = tRA+ from 95 to 105, the average #3 has a 100 tRA+.
    #4 SP = tRA+ from 86 to 94, the average #4 has a 91 tRA+.
    #5 SP = tRA+ of 85 or lower, the average #5 has a 76 tRA+.

    Statcorner has it. Just search for whichever pitcher you want and click on the "Pitch Results" tab. It's "SwStr%". They also have called strike percentage, in play percentage, foul ball percentage...pretty much everything you'd want to know can be found at Statcorner, Fangraphs, The Hardball Times or BP.

    This maybe too simple but I always forget:

    How many innings must a rookie pitcher clock in to be considered in the ROY voting? And the same with batters but how many AB's must they have?

    A rookie is formally defined as a player with less than one-hundred thirty at-bats, a pitcher with less than fifty innings pitched, or anyone with less than forty-five days on any Major League roster.


    I heard you were looking for me.

    I don't fully get BABIP.

    Like John Smoltz, he has one of .394 how do you determine that he is unlikely as opposed to being crap.

    Like Lester has a .342 BABIP is he getting unlucky? or lucky that his ERA is low with that high of a BABIP????????
    Jackie Bradley Junior.... that is all
