Similarity Scores -
For each stat, if the player was in the top 10 in any year or the top 50 in his career,
an entry is listed. The entries are the year, their rank on the board, and the
value for this stat. League leaders are in bold.
For season batting rate stats, 502 plate appearances
are required to make it onto the boards. However, if after adding the required
number of hit-less at-bats, the player is still in the top 10, the entry is
maked by an asterik. His actual number is in his season line and the adjusted
number is in the leaderboard entry. For career batting rate stats, 3000 plate
appearances are required to make it onto the boards.
For season pitching rate stats, 162 innings pitched are required to make it onto the boards. For career pitching rate stats, 700 innings pitched are required to make it onto the boards.
Black-Ink TextNamed so because league leading numbers are traditionally represented with Boldface type. The definition for the test used here is from Bill James' The Politics of Glory, pp. 65-67. This measures how often a player led the league in a variety of important stats. To get a point, the player must have led the league in that stat.
Gray-Ink TestSimilar to the Black-Ink test, but it counts all appearances in the top ten lists.
Hall of Fame Career Standards Test
This test gives a score of 50 for an average Hall of Famer, with 100 as the max score. It is used to measure the overall quality of a player's career as opposed to singular brilliance (peak value).
Also, I require a minimum of 20 points in this metric before the value is displayed for a player. Anything below that is meaningless.
This can be found in James's book on pp. 174-176. All values are for career marks, and I've required 1000 at bats or 500 IP for the rate stats to kick in.
