Here is a good link if you need to brush up on your baseball stat terminology.

Long time no see. Happy Holidays to you and yours, Dirty.
Thanks for the link on these stats. Seeing more and more of these used lately, especially that wOBA. What’s good about this link is it not only gives the definition, it gives what an average for most should be. That gives me a better idea of a player’s worth when I see some of these on an expanded slash line.
I’ll become proficient on these sabermetrics yet…

thanks 4d…and a happy holidays to you family as well
Yea, the big thing for me is to know the averages. Stats are great but I didnt know if the numbers were a good thing or bad lol. My education in Sab is an ongoing adventure lol

interesting (actually, quite ridiculous) slideshow on bleacher report. I say that based on how they seemed to have picked the guys.
The interesting part is the 2 Mets that made the list. One that would make some heads on MMO explode, and the other one that sure didn’t get there as a Met!

That’s garbage. Everyone knows the only stat that means anything for a hitter is RBI

One of my co-workers son is in the process of writing a whole bunch of new software for MLB. I just found this out like a day or so before end of year shutdown. I will inquire in January as to what he’s working on and report back if it’s a bunch of new Sabermetrics based stuff as opposed to some nifty new boring timecard IT enhancement crap.
Other interesting tidbit was he said “you think the players make a lot of money you should see what the MLB office exec’s make”.

Hazmet, what do you do for a living?

I work in Aerospace. 20+ years in. Currently working hi-rel space applications as a preference. Over 10 years on hi-rel space microelectronics and power management LRU’s. Currently working a non-classified space weather program dealing with ionospheric interference. I believe from some of your prior posts you’re also in the industry, as well as 4D thereby the extra detail as fyi. I’ve also
worked B-1B Flight Controls, Blackhawk & Commanche Hybrids, THAAD, NPOESS (currently awaiting first NPP images over the next few weeks), GPSIII, and other various commercial and mil satellite hardware. Also worked Fuel Gauging Systems for commercial aircraft, not as interesting imo. All non classified programs as I’ve stayed clear of the hassle of clearances to date but may not be able to dodge it much longer. Also worked ground based radar, navaids stuff too. All in the Program Management / Systems role. My dad also worked in the field from post WWII to 1985 on all sorts of spooky stuff including SR-71 so it almost feels like I’ve been in the industry going on 50 years. Thanks for asking, there are few of us left on LI as the industry has continually downsized and moved away from the cradle of aviation.

I put in 35 years as a direct employee mostly in pure R&D on projects ranging from Military Programs I can’t discuss to the development of 3G wireless. I retired in 2004 but one can’t live on SS and savings alone without ending up on welfare so I do some part time consulting for the place I retired from. I have watched the aerospace industry on LI basically dissolve and I’d hate to be a young Engineer entering the field today. The working conditions for the young Engineer today is incredibly stressful. The years I worked in R&D were a delight and truly fell under the real definition of Professional. That atmosphere is no longer available in the industry.
