Replacement Value by David Appelman December 24, 2008 There’s a new section in the batting player pages which does the job of calculating a player’s runs over replacement and wins over replacement. Major thanks goes to Dave Cameron, Sean Smith, and Tangotiger for instructing me on the best way to do this. Under each “Value” section you’ll find: Batting – wRAA (Runs Above Average) with a park adjustment. Fielding – The sum of a player’s UZR. Replacement – The replacement level adjustment set at 20 Runs / 600 PA. Positional – The positional adjustment set using Tangotiger’s values (see this link) Value Runs – The sum of Batting, Fielding, Replacement, and Positional. Value Wins – Value Runs converted to a wins scale. Dollars – Value Wins converted to the following dollar scale: 2002 – $2.6m / win 2003 – $2.8m / win 2004 – $3.1m / win 2005 – $3.4m / win 2006 – $3.7m / win 2007 – $4.1m / win 2008 – $4.5m / win This will all eventually be in the leaderboards and team pages, probably later this week.
