Guys! Stop! Unless you’ve taken college statistics it is impossible for you to understand a stat in regards to sports so just stop! It’s impossible.
Sabermetrics is using some complex statistical analysis. Possibly too complex. And for most people not only do they not understand HOW some of them are conceived but the underlying principles that go into it.
For example being that you wanted to comment. Please answer the following
What is the TOTAL formula used to determine WAR.
What statistical procedure are used and why.
What are some principles used to determine which procedures to use.
Most people including yourself can’t answer that
Here is the formula for WAR
I've already shared the formula for wRC+.
Now show me how wRC+ is BASED on WAR (not just use some of the same components).
Your Copy paste skills are next level. Yeah but to truly understand it you need to explain or at least understand the how the component variables are created and the reason why. Do you understand league adjustment. Why are those stats added. Do they have equal bake and how do you know this. If not should there be a coefficient.
Whatever dude, you have no idea clearly. But please talk amongst yourselves. You all seem to have a clue.
Yes, like I said - I'm copy pasting it because it saves me time.
You asked for the full formula so I gave it to you.
Ok I am sure it has nothing to do with you not being able to put it into your own words. Ok...last word is yours. You are just not knowledgeable enough to have a conversation about sabermetrics. This is just silly at this point. Like I said like explaining a lightning to a baboon
I'll say it again because you missed the 2nd half of the comment.
wRC+ uses weighted runs above average and league averages but to say that because it uses those it is therefore based on WAR and the entire summation that makes up WAR is a ridiculous statement.
Also, you requesting me to rephrase a mathematical formula is downright ridiculous.
It's like requesting me to rephrase a2+b2=c2...
Nope i am requesting nothing from you. I am done if you are done...
Btw that formula states that there is a specific and constant relationship that exists between the sides of a right triangle.
More importantly, this is based on proofs and theorems that exist objectively in geometry and algebra.
WAR is NOT something that has the necessary underlying proof work or theorems that would make it valid. Trust me when I say that WAR has not gone under the level of scrutiny via proofs that Pythagorean’s theorem has. Wait did you just compare the Pythagorean theorem with sabermetrics.
Oh wait, I am sorry I went over your head.
Anyway. To answer your question..I request nothing. I have nothing left to add that you could comprehend
5000 IQ Redditor right here guys, just admit it, we're no match
Cool. I am going to wait for you to say something interesting or relevant.
You definitely did not wait
What am I suppose to do with this. You are failing at insulting me or proving me wrong. I think it’s because you don’t seem to have a point.why are you even bothering commenting. Is it because with all the bad posts you have made I am the only one who gives you attention. Do you just need a hug? I may know a bit about stats but you are beyond my ability comprehend.
