- How can you ostensibly give creedence to players with greater plate appearaqnces/ABs, while also leveling the BA or OPS playing field?
first step is to project AB and PA for each player. whatever value you assign to a player based on his raw BA, mulitply it by (playerAB/avgAB), which will give it the appropriate weighting. avgAB is the average projected ABs of whatever player group you are comparing.
OPS is trickier b/c it relies on PA and AB. what i do is take the modified value for OBP and SLG that i got using the above process and plug into this: (playerAB/(playerAB+playerPA))*playerOBPscore + (playerPA/(playerAB+playerPA))*playerSLGscore
- As far as your other point, it seems difficult to uncover anomalies if any results I yield don't somehwat parallel other rating systems. I'm unsure where the discovering begins and the confirming ends?
search for posts made by me using keywords like "projections" "rankings" standard deviation" "stdev"
you'll find detailed explanations of what i do and plenty of otehr people as well whose other posts you can search for. you'll find lots of helpful stuff.
