Royals Lead the AL in New Stat!

 

Here’s a ray of sunshine on a dreary day after the Royals lose their fifth in a row – your Kansas City Royals lead the American League in Don’t Make Outs (DMO)!

What is DMO?  It’s a stat I made up that adds base-running skills to OBP, and punishes for GDP.  I made it in order to get a clearer picture of a player’s total offensive performance.

 

The formula is: (H+HBP+BB+SB-CS-GDP-PO)/PA.  The stat is expressed as a decimal, and in most cases will be close to OBP.  It will drop or rise significantly for players that steal lots of bases or GDP a lot.

Here are the AL totals for 2011 so far (last night’s games not included).  I have included OBP as a reference:

Update: Corrected for IBB and added PO

Mitch Maier* 0.526 0.526
Wilson Betemit# 0.386 0.386
Billy Butler 0.381 0.392
Matt Treanor 0.375 0.389
Alex Gordon* 0.333 0.339
Jeff Francoeur 0.326 0.337

Kila Ka'aihue* 0.260 0.295
Alcides Escobar 0.253 0.266

For reference, last year the Royals were middle of the pack, and in 2009 they were next to last in this stat.
