What is Wins Probability Added (WPA) & Eliminating Pitcher Wins
May 13 / Patrick Mayo, Staff Writer / RotoExperts
Advanced statistics can be confusing, but FNTSY Sports Network's Pat Mayo outlines and attempts to sway Game Time Decisions' Gabriel Morency to his side with Win Probability Added (WPA). Mayo explains that WPA doesn't have much Fantasy Baseball value as a predictive stat, but tells us which players have actually had the greatest impact on their team's success within a season. While Mayo doesn't believe that "clutch" is quantifiable, he does believe that WPA can identify which players have come up the biggest for their teams so far. The guys also chat about eliminating the pitcher win as a stat in normal and Fantasy Baseball.
