Lies, Damned Lies: Superstars, All-Stars and Busts

Nate Silver

Jason Bay and Bobby Crosby have received a considerable honor from the Baseball Writers Association of America. What happened to the 116 players who came before them?

Nevertheless, the two candidates were fairly close. Bay missed more playing time than Greene did, which accounted for some of the difference in VORP. He probably has more star potential than Greene does, though we'll see what PECOTA has to say in a month or two; slow middle infielders like Greene tend not to age very well. The writers have certainly made bigger mistakes, and at the very least, it's hard to chalk this particular one up to some sort of newsprint-fueled hubris; Internet Baseball Awards participants also preferred Bay by a small margin.

The Great Leap Forward

Mark Armour

In a recent article about the 1967 Boston Red Sox, I wrote that the team's 20-win improvement was not particularly unusual. I had spent a few minutes convincing myself that there were a few other teams in neighboring seasons that accomplished the feat, but made no attempt to determine how common it was, or whether the 1960s were particularly unique in this regard. This article delves into the topic quite a bit further, presenting an historical survey of the phenomenon, while contemplating patterns that might help us figure out who is most likely to leap forward this year.

First, we need to explain the methodology. To account for different season lengths, I adjusted all team seasons to 162 games. For illustration, lets look at the largest improvement by a team in baseball history:

Barry Bonds continued his domination of Internet NL Player of the Year voting by winning the IBA NL Player of the Year for the third straight year and the sixth time overall. Bonds has finished at least third in Internet NL Player of the Year voting after every season except 1999, when he was limited to less than 450 plate appearances by an injury.

Barry Bonds continued his domination of Internet NL Player of the Year voting by winning the IBA NL Player of the Year for the third straight year and the sixth time overall. Bonds has finished at least third in Internet NL Player of the Year voting after every season except 1999, when he was limited to less than 450 plate appearances by an injury. Vlad Guerrero, who had finished in the top 20 each of the last four years, finished second despite playing for the seemingly doomed Expos. Randy Johnson, who finished in third place, was the highest ranking pitcher in Internet NL Player of the Year voting since Greg Maddux won the award in 1995. Albert Pujols, who finished fourth after his 2001 rookie campaign, moved up a notch to third in 2002 and was the only everyday player from a division winner to finish in the top ten.
