Yes, That Happened. Royals Lose 1-0 and Fail to Support Greinke Again

It's getting harder and harder to care about this team on a daily basis. I actively dislike about half the roster at this point and I'm somewhere between really and truly rooting for losses and...

Percent Chance of Select Royals Hitters Hitting a Certain Number of Homers given 650 PAs in 2009, drawing on CHONE projections. If you need a closer look, click here. I already posted this at Royals Review, but given the recent fun with Excel's BINOMDIST function and the accompanying charts (not to mention how long it took it to get through my thick head), I thought I'd post it here. Those more in the know: is something like a binomial distribution roughly how stuff in projections systems like CHONE's percentiles and ZiPS' "Oddsinator" are generated?

A look back at the Kansas City Royals and their 2008 season. An in-depth retrospective on a fourth place team that no proper fan should miss.

Average wOBA by Position

19

Yes, the dastardly Sox site has done something that was asked about last week when Fangraphs added wOBA -- the offensive stat we should all be using. Thanks to Sky for pointing it out and also for agreeing with me that Colin made a mistake with the 3B adjustment. The methodology isn't perfect (to be more precise one would need to judge each position in relation to league average wOBA year-to-year) but it isn't meant to be. It's rough. He has a little chart that includes adjustments for defense, but I'm not going to deal with the headache of arguing about that here (the positional adjustment thing is bad enough, sometimes). So... here are the averages Colin has, and then how some Royals (and new Royals) did in relation to those averages in 2008 -- this is retrospective, not predictive. I'm using StatCorner's version of wOBA because, among other things, it's park-adjusted (wOBA*). Some guys are listed in more than one position for obvious reasons. C .306 Olivo .313 (+.07) Buck .300 (-.06) SS .326 TPJ .189 (-.137) Avilanche .364 (+.038) 2B .335 Grudz .345 (+.010) Callaspo .341 (+.06) German .294 (-.041) CF .335 DDJ .361 (+.026) Gathright .277 (-.058) Crisp .334 ( -.01) MITCH .288 (-.047) 3B .335 Gordon .351 (+.016) Teahen .315 (-.020) RF/LF .354 Teahen .315 (-.039) Guillen .329 (-.025) DDJ .361 (+.07) 1B .364 Gload .304 (-.060) Butler .326 (-.038) Jacobs .342 (-.022)

Impotence Update

Last season the Royals hit only 102 home runs, the lowest total in the Majors by a wide margin (Minnesota was 29th with 118) and 59 below the American League average of 161. (Oddly, the NL...
