Moneyball league stats

Postby hooligan1 » Wed Dec 22, 2004 6:15 pm

I am just in the process of reading Moneyball (great book by the way) and I seem to remember a thread from a while back about what stats would be used in a 5x5 "moneyball" league. This now interests me a great deal. Does anybody remember what stats were discussed? Or alternately, can anyone provide a link to the thread? I tried using a search, but couldn't seem to come up with it. Any help is appreciated!! Thanks......

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

The MB league was my idea way back then.... I still plan to start it. If anyone wants to join, I'll post info as the season gets closer and I know how many slots are left.

I think it'll take a season of trying it to work out all the kinks, but it should be fun. ;-D
Help please:

Harden- 2.15 ERA, 7.61 K/9
Peavy - 2.89 ERA, 10.10 K/9
