WP82 leaders for the playoffs

Filed under: Uncategorized — Bradford Doolittle @ 9:32 am

Since we’re not uploading data for the postseason, I thought I’d check in with my WP82 leaders for the playoffs. I’ve also listed the regular season figures for each player so you can see who has raised their games … and who hasn’t. I’m going to change the name of my core metric after the season because ‘Wins Produced’ conflicts with Dave Berri’s work at Wages of Wins. Because of the way it’s calculated, I thought Win Shares might work. Wait … dammit. How about Wins Claimed (WC)? World Wins Expected (WWE)? Wins Taken or Found (WTF)? No, all those have stigmata. Maybe Approximate Wins (AW). Gotta keep thinking …
