Well, I have a couple ideas:
1) I want to do an analysis of every baseball player ever to see how age affects every stat. For example, an average major leaguer loses 10% of his homeruns between ages 34 and 35 (this is just an example, not something I'm stating as fact). I want to do this for every stat so we have some way of taking age into account when projecting stats.
2) I want to normalize each year's statistics for park factor, then adjust them back for whichever team the player is playing for. For example, adjust Preston Wilson's stats for playing in Florida for last year, project his stats for this year based on those normalized stats, then increase them for the "Coors Effect."
3) I want to do an analysis of every player who has switched leagues to see how much that effects a player's stats.
Those are the ideas I have come up with so far. But that is the point of wanting to get a group of stat-heads together. I have my own ideas and opinions, but I'm not sure they are correct
I'm open to any suggestions.
From the official rulebook of baseball: "Baseball is a game played between two teams of nine players each." Therefore, baseball is a game played only in the National League.
