2012-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)So why is the median HOF worse than the mean, for the JAWS line? Because it is lower, due to astronomical JAWS scores for Ruth, Mays, etc?
(collins from greenville nc)
Because far more players meet the median score at a given position than the mean.

Take center field, where the JAWS standard is admittedly high at 58.3 (that's after the positional adjustment) and the median is at 49.7. 10 players, including not-yet-eligibles, are above the mean, 15 are at or above the median (we'll call Dawson at 49.5 close enough), and 33 are above the 25th percentile, including Willie Wilson and Dom DiMaggio, with Lenny Dykstra just missing. (Jay Jaffe's Hall of Fame Special)
2009-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)With Dom DiMaggio's recent passing, could you please put his career into historical perspective? How about some sort of "Joe-Independent Career Analysis"?
(BL from Bozeman)
I had to read this three times before I realized you meant DiMaggio-Independent and not Sheehan; I didn't remember Joe writing anything about the Little Professor. Dom was a great ballplayer in his own right, not just because he was Joe's little brother. Writing the day after his death, I said he was like Brett Butler but with more walks and a bit more pop, though it's hard to separate his production from Fenway Park, which was oh so friendly in those days. He was probably a better fielder than Joe--so was older brother Vince, an underrated player for various reasons--but they were all very good outfielders. Some like to see Dom as a Hall of Famer, especially if you give him credit for his missed WW II years, but I don't quite see it that way. It wasn't just the war that shortened his career--he quit when Lou Boudreau decided to bench him in 1953, there's the park factor... I mean, if Phil Rizzuto is in, I guess he could be in, as he performed a similar role--leadoff hitter, defensive centerpiece of a very good team. Then again, Rizzuto had 93 rings and Dom's Red Sox had just the one pennant, and it's kind of a reductionist argument. Anyway, he was a very good player, regardless of his surname. (Steven Goldman)
