|"The search for objective knowledge about baseball." Read a primer of Bill James' findings, or David Grabiner's manifesto on Sabermetrics. Studies address minor league equivalencies ("Are minor league stats a good precictor of major league performance?"), clutch hitting ("Do some hitters perform better in clutch situations?"), and a FAQ on evaluating Negro Leaguers. Tools include Lineup Optimizer; Similarity Scores, an Excel worksheet to calculate the similarity of two hitters; and Brock 2, which projects a player's future performance. Sabermetrics comes from the acronym SABR, which stands for Society For American Baseball Research.|
