Advanced Stats

Post by VoodooK » Tue May 08, 2018 2:38 pm

I know there are a couple good advanced stats already like FIP and RC, but are there any plans to include others like WAR for example?

WAR is not a stat that lends itself well to iScore because it requires knowing data about the entire league. With MLB, stats are kept for the entire league and you are able to determine the "League Adjustment" and "Position Adjustment" factors that go into the WAR calculation from season to season. The values used in MLB would not apply to youth players however, and the values would also not be the same across different ages or even likely the same from one league to the next.

So bottom line is WAR is not likely a stat that would be included as it just can not be determined in a consistent / meaningful way at the youth level.
