    So in terms of fantasy baseball, it is currently Week 14, and there have been only 3 weeks in which I haven't been in first place.

    Love fantasy baseball, especially because this is my first year.

    In terms of regular baseball, go Jeter, go Nats, poor Pujols, All Star game coming up woo, etc, etc

    Phillies team wOBA at 2nd base: .302
    Second Base: This is not Chase Utley‘s fault. His .382 wOBA is best among second basemen with 150 or more plate appearances. Instead, blame the trio of Wilson Valdez, Pete Orr, and Michael Martinez who filled in for Utley while he was recovering from an injury and racked up 56 percent of all of the plate appearances at second base.

    What the fuck is wOBA?

    "First off, wOBA is a linear weight formula presented as a rate statistic scaled to On Base Percentage. Essentially, what that means is that average wOBA will always equal average OBP for any given year. If you know what the league’s OBP is, you know what the league’s wOBA is. Usually, league average falls in the .335 range – it was .332 last year, but offense was down around the game in 2008, which may or may not continue."

    So it attempts to show what a player's average type of on-base action (single, home run, walk, whatever) but uses a weighted scale instead of a simple linear progression.

    Yeah...I uh...I don't understand Sabremetrics at all. Like I read that, and I still don't understand what wOBA is.

    Which brings to the fact that I saw the trailer for Moneyball before T3. What a load horseshit that movie looks like.

    Cal Ripken Jr and Ozzie Smith are both better than Jeter.

    Cy Young was a better shortstop than Jeter is.

    Omar Vizquel has played 6 more seasons and has 40 less errors on his career. Defensively I don't see how anyone could say there's ever been anyone better at short than Vizquel.

    Also, at age 44 he's currently batting higher than Jeter and batted higher last year.

    "weighting" means each time a player reaches base, you take into account how he got on base and adjust accordingly

    that is, you multiply the players home runs by a certain constant weight (you don't really have to understand how these weights were calculated to understand how woba works but here's a table: http://www.tangotiger.net/customlwts.html), triples by another weight and so on for doubles, singles, walks, hbp

    then you divide by plate appearances

    there is then also an additional scaling so that the league average of woba corresponds to the league average of obp

    Vizquel is probably the most technically sound SS ever. He's not as flashy as Ozzie was but he'll make every single routine play you throw at him.

    Omar's FP: .984
    Ozzie's FP: .978

    except fielding percentage isn't that useful as a metric

    besides the myriad of inconsistencies in baseball's scoring system itself, it only applies to balls a fielder gets to and thus benefits players with less range (eg if 2 players have 20 balls hit their way, and player a gets to 18 of them, committing 2 errors, while players b gets to 14 of them, committing 0 errors, player b has a higher fp (1.000 to .889) despite allowing 2 more baserunners than player a)

    pretty much every defensive metric besides fp (including the Eye Test) favors ozzie smith by a pretty significant amount

    Vizquel was plenty flashy. He'd easily hurdle anyone that attempted to slide into him and he could bare-hand damn near anything. Sometimes I'd cringe at what he'd grab with his bare hand.
