Can anyone tell me how Rtot works... I've been looking but I can't find any articles on it. From What I've seen of UZR I have a horrible time trusting folks with my statistics If I can't calculate it myself I have issues...
the original primer link from Fan graphs is here.
certain balls batted into play don't count towards it? Foul balls not in a specific zone don't count. Can't be calculated for pitchers and cathers... No way to account for Outfield arm. I don't like all the holes in it.
So I want to figure out how Rtot works. So I can talk about it with more confidence... cause this UZR stuff seems like a little bit magic. Anybody able to help a guy out with a link?
