Tribe Win Shares

Unread postby consigliere » Wed May 17, 2006 2:57 pm

This is blatantly copied from another forum.....but anyway, The Hardball Times just posted up to date win shares:

http://www.hardballtimes.com/thtstats/m ... mit=Submit

(that link is disgusting, so just goto THT and find your way)

Anyway....some key points:

- The Indians and the White Sox are equal on position players- meaning that whatever offensive advantage we have, we give up with our defense.

- VMart is 9th in the AL in win shares. AJ Pierzynski is 5th. Obviously Victor's defense is killing us here.....

- Broussard/Perez have combined for 9 win shares to Konerko's 6. That is a very nice advantage for us, especially considering dollars spent and their combined effort is 3rd in all of baseball in win shares, only behind Pujols (14) and Berkman (10).

- Thome has 11 win shares to Hafner's 7.

- As much as Boone hurts us....Belliard may be hurting us more. He has 1 win share this year.....he's been completelyl awful. That's good enough for a tie for 15th in the AL- he's behind some players who've hardly even played this year.

I don't have a clue what the fuck a win share is, but anything that means Pyerputsky is more important to a team than VMart should be urinated on.

I've recently been turned onto what win shares were....like sometime last season. It is a valid stat....followed colsely by fans of sabermetrics.

(BTW, Shapiro and the Indians, as well as other clubs, are big on sabermetrics)
