Twins Sabermetic Stats

Posted by Paul Pleiss , 13 August 2014 · 954 views

Twins Sabermetic Stats Sean Doolittle of the Oakland A's did a guest piece for ESPN and made up some Sabermetric statsfor Oakland, including in his list were BDP (Beard Dependent pitching), WPA/3+C (win probablitly added with three plus catchers in the lineup) and frFSR (right field fan scouting report) along with others, You can check the article for the full list.

What sort of tongue in cheek stats would the Twins have?

LAR (Legs above replacement) If you have bi-lateral leg weakness, that's an automatic -2.0 on the LAR scale.

HAH+ (Heart and Hustle plus) Adjusted to 100 for league average, above is better, below is worse. Gardy uses this stat to make his lineup. No heart, no hustle, no playing time.

2BB2 (Play second, bat second) The number one stat used to determine lineup construction on a day in, day out basis.

Absolutely hilarious. Here are a few more.

 

BTO- Battling Tail Off

 

GAI - Getting After It

 

RSI - Really spinning it

 

Example, Mike Pelfrey may have had a 6.00+ ERA over the last two years, but his BTO is off the chart.You need vets like that to really battle.

"Jared Burton has an RSI value that's top 5 in the league, goes out there, spins it real well, but just doesn't get the results he deserves" - Rick Anderson, probably.

Very funny, good times.
