  • New fangraphs stat "+stats"

    Fg now has +stats on the leaderboard, basically seeing how much above average or below average the most important stats are.

    I now have my own non commercial blog about training for batspeed and power using my training experience in baseball and track and field.

    Top 10 in K%+ since 1901 (minimum 5000 PA):
    Hack Wilson 196 - that's why they called him hack, I guess
    Gorman Thomas - 194
    Dave Kingman - 192
    Dolph Camilli - 191
    Babe Ruth - 190 - Lionel may be onto something about how Ruth's K-rate would play today
    Jimmie Foxx - 185
    Hank Greenberg - 176
    Reggie Jackson - 174
    Tony Lazzeri - 172
    Tony Armas - 169

    Bonds's career K%+ was 69, which is phenomenal, considering all his power. He basically struck out like a weak hitting slap artist. Musial's was even lower, at 54. Williams was at 80, Frank Thomas at 87. Nellie Fox was the lowest, at 20.

    Top 10 in BA+
    Cobb
    Jackson
    LaJoie
    Williams
    Gwynn
    Carew
    Hornsby
    Speaker
    Wagner
    Boggs

    Highest active player is Cabrera (15th)

    Top 10 in OBP+
    Williams
    Ruth
    Bonds
    Votto
    Cobb
    Hornsby
    Mantle
    Jackson
    Boggs
    Speaker

    Top 10 in SLG+
    Ruth
    Williams
    Gehrig
    Greenberg
    Jackson
    Hornsby
    Foxx
    Bonds
    Mize
    Cobb

    Note: If the bar is dropped to 4500 PA to include Trout, he's 4th in OBP.

      I know you're joking about the Ruth comment., but it needs to be said. Just like Ruth would not outhomer entire teams in today's game, he also would not strike out at almost twice the league average rate. It makes a huge difference in your relative stats when you're playing an entirely different style of baseball than the rest of the league is.

      Cobb's place on this list is especially impressive, when you consider 1) How unwilling any pitcher would be to give him a free pass and let the madman loose on the basepaths. And 2) He played at a time when premiere sluggers had almost no advantage in walks over their peers, because it was so unlikely that even the most powerful would punish the pitcher with a home run. So Cobb had 2 huge disadvantages that none of the players above him had, and he still placed so high.
      The only way to pitch to Tony (Gwynn) is throw the ball down the middle and hope he hits it at someone." - Al Leiter
