I use a weighted ballot system thingy for the All-Star Game. I start voting at the beginning of May, casting 2 ballots the first week of May, 3 the next week, 4 the next week, and so on, until I max out my votes. Anyway, this week my ballot looks like this (for the All-Star game, I tend to vote on the basis of wOBA, except at short and second where obvious defensive incompetence makes me vote for a guy who at least looks like he should be a middle infielder):
Win Probability Added (WPA) is a very useful tool for evaluating the relative contribution of players in achieving their ends: winning games.
Whomever has Mike Stanton as a prospect should get a handerkerchief/napkin/dropcloth ready to catch all the drool.
Rob Neyer says it all here, the last paragraph noting the ignorance behind the Phillies’ move.
