Major League Equivalency [MLE]
This is a "secret" formula used and developed exclusive by Bill James of STATS, Inc. which is used to determine what a Minor League player would have hit had he been a player in the Major Leagues. It is not used a tool for future predictions but rather determines the player's level of performance in the past and adjusts for the difficult level in the big leagues to estimate performance on a current Major
this is what I keep coming across, and its driving me nuts. Does anybody ...
A) Know the formula or
B) Know some mathematical formula similar, so that I can look at a AAA players stats, and equate it to MLB. It would need to take into account park effects I guess, but I can deal with that later...
Ideally this is going to be used in excell, but I don't think that matters, right now.
I would love to be able to figure out what a players Major League Equivalency was for a given season, so that I can use it to project.
thanks in advance. ...
