I have seen this posted on bf.net before, but I am interested in seeing a table that lists "expected runs" for different situations during a baseball game (ex. runners on 1st and 2nd with 1 out).

Could someone post a link on where I could find a table with that information?

Right here:

There may be a newer one, but this is usually the one I reference when I mention Run Expectancy.

Run Frequency - 1999-02

The following table presents the rate of the number of runs that scored, from that base/out state, to the end of that inning. All data is from 1999-2002.

I use the second table alot. For instance, it tells me:

* Lead off double scores 63% of the time
* Runner at 3B and 1 out scores 66% of the time

Thanks. Exactly what I was looking for.

Out of curiousity only...why are the only tables available from 1999-2002? Of course, to create a table like this takes a lot of resources, but I would think there would be different tables with larger/different samples available, too.

Thanks again.

This has always bugged me. When we evaluate players, we always talk about 10 runs being equal to a win. I've seen it so much I accept it as fact. But I'd love to see a couple links to more information about it.

Two ways to come up with the magic number of 10 additional runs = 1 additional win.

Use linear regression. Let wins be your dependent variable while run differential is the independent variable. Use data from any year.

Or for those not statistically inclined, take out a sheet of ordinary graph paper. Let the Y-axis be wins, the X-axis run differential. Take the 14 or 16 teams from any league or any year and plot. Draw a straight line that closest to connecting most of the dots. That line should have a slop of about "10".

Does anybody know where you can download statistics (preferably at the lowest level possible (i.e. Player/Game/AB). Any format (.txt, .db, .xls, etc).

Thanks,
Shannon

I used this for my senior paper in college (of course, about the Brewers):

Hope this helps!

Thanks. I found that one, but I believe those are yearly numbers. I was looking for something a little more disaggregate. It's a nice history however so I think I'll grab it anyway. Thanks again.

The easiest thing to do (that I've found):

1. Copy stats from ESPN.com or where ever and save in notepad (take spaces out of team names, WhiteSox for instance).

2. Open in excel (make sure to choose .txt) and choose "delimited" then "next" then "space".

At the end of the season I'll do it for league team stats and Brewer stats, so I can shoot them to you if you like.

This really needs to get cleaned up. We need a single pinned thread with just links, organized by topics (like what 1992casey did earlier in this thread).

Isn't there a way to open up a single post to editing by all?

Uhhh, I hope someone out there hears this. The last post on this thread was over a year ago. Can someone clean this up and just post some good links?

"In baseball, the danger of using small sample sizes boils down to a a phenomenon called regression to the mean. Most of you have at least heard of this concept, and practically everybody utilizes it intuitively in their everyday lives. Regression to the mean, simply put, is the tendency for any observation to be less extreme on subsequent observations."

This is a must read.

"I think I've been called, indirectly at least, a small sample size Nazi. I don't have the patience to discuss with anybody who insists on using small sample sizes as the basis for their argument. It's dangerous, it's wrong, and you should never, ever do it. Let's talk about why that is.
...
...for any player, you have "true skill" and "actual performance." We too often think that "actual performance" is "true skill." That's incorrect. A player has a true skill, and he utilizes that true skill to accumulate actual performance data. But those data are only random samples from his true skill."


This should be posted as a banner atop the forums... especially the bold part.


Forecasting performance based on regressing to the major league mean is actually remarkably accurate. Projecting a player's performance by simple regression to the league mean is almost as good as systems like PECOTA, Chone, or ZiPS.

Who knew? Image

Great read; thanks for sharing that rluz.

"The key is identifying the moment. The worst is when you try to do it halfway: when you think you can compete and you also think you're trying to rebuild. Then you're stuck in no-man's-land. You either do it or you don't." -- Billy Beane
