2008 Scouting Report By The Fans Prettied Up

November 28th, 2008 by Melvin

Here are your Padres. League average for each trait is set to 50. My first post on the subject generated some great dialogue.

The same caveats still apply: no defensive metric, including the fans’ scouting report, is everything you’ll ever need for accurate evaluation. What our eyes see and our brains remember is startlingly suceptable to bias. The best way to deal with this is to spread the information we use around, like a bet on a roulette table. Leverage the eyes of other baseball fans, plus the brains and labor of smart people who have developed other metrics and create a well rounded understanding of players’ abilities.
