  • openWAR on Baseball Analytics

    Within baseball analytics, there is substantial interest in comprehensive statistics intended to capture overall player performance. One such measure is Wins Above Replacement (WAR), which aggregates the contributions of a player in each facet of the game: hitting, pitching, baserunning, and fielding. However, current versions of WAR depend upon proprietary data, ad hoc methodology, and opaque calculations. Dr. Matthews proposes a competitive aggregate measure, openWAR, that is based upon public data and methodology with greater rigor and transparency.
