SABBL All-Star Break

As the SABBL season passes the halfway point, I thought I'd post the standings and some stats:

AMERICAN LEAGUE
Yankees (Brian) 5-3
Twins (Michael) 5-3
Tigers (Scott) 4-4
A's (Jon) 3-5

NATIONAL LEAGUE
Padres (Sean) 4-4
Mets (Mark) 4-4
Dodgers (Chris) 4-4
Cardinals (Dennis) 3-5

Not surprisingly, given that these are all playoff teams, the standings are pretty tight. I'll put various team and individual stats in the comments sections. Some of them are fun to look at and compare to the real life players, and some are an interesting reflection of manager tendencies (especially things like saves or stolen bases).

It is interesting to compare these stats to the real life stats. You would expect that all of the simulation stats would be worse then real life. Pitchers who faced league average hiting are facing better then that and hitters who faced league average pitchers are facing better then that. Of course the major issue is that with only 8 games played the stats scream out as unbeing an unrepresentative small sample size. To the extent the sample size increases and the current trends hold or to the extent that all of the stats are erring from th expected in the same direction; we have to look to some combination of managing (good or bad); systemic issues (strat is not actually the best simulator and has particular biases); or league specific rules that cause variances.

Funny that the Dodgers have the worst batting average against, but the best ERA. And the fewest walks AND strikeouts (which balance each other out, I guess).

My pitchers blew up over the last four games, so I think this season so far can be well summed up by the phrase I heard Dennis use Monday night, "regression to the mean."

strat is not actually the best simulator and has particular biases

...like the fact that the game could be retitled "Strat-O-Matic: The Derek Jeter Story." ;-)

I think everyone is going to be hard pressed in catching up with my hit into double play numbers.

On the bright side, I have the least errors of the league.

I don't know, Jon. The cards got 5 or 6 in the week 6 series (which isn't factored into the stats).
