Season 20 L.C. Golden Gloves

Now that the league is completely filled, it makes grabbing historical data a lot easier, not that getting data from WIS is ever easy. I wish there was a button I could hit and it would all just automatically download, but that’s wishful thinking.

Anyway, since I last published fielding data, I’ve made some revisions to my formula. “+” and “-” play values are both weighted higher than they were before, along with outfield assists. I’ve also changed the way I convert the number of plays above/below average a lot lower than it was. No more 50 runs saved for some of the extremes. Previously I was considering an out to be worth .67 runs, while a play missed was .34 runs, based off the research into the value of a stolen base versus being thrown out. Now I’ve kind of just chosen an arbitrary value to get it onto a scale resembling UZR. I’ve got it setup right now so that the best fielders will save about 25/30 runs, and even that might be a little higher than I’m really comfortable with. I might have to come back and tweak a couple of positions to bring it more in line, but for now we’ll run with it.

I didn’t break the players into AL/NL like last time.

Here are Season 20’s L.C. Golden Glove Winners:

C –  D'Angelo Alberro – DOV – 13

1B –  Edgard Batista – TRE – 15.2

2B –  Kazuo Lee – FLA – 17.4

3B –  Gio Solano – DET – 18.7

SS –  Huston Kielty – TUC – 29.4

LF –  Craig Hardy – SCO – 18.9

CF –  Alex Buhner – DOV – 28.9

RF –  Ronnie Stratton – CLE – 11.8

Cities are those in Season 22. I didn’t want to bother going back and finding what city the team was in season 20, plus it might help the new people find players currently on their team.
