Sabermetric Stats in Seattle

I heard via the SABR-L list that on Wednesday May 25th, The Seattle Times replaced their traditional league leaders tables with sabermetric versions built by one of their columnists, Jeff Angus whose blog I follow, and Baseball Reference's Sean Forman. This appears to be only the second time sabermetric stats have been used to this degree in a paper, the first apparently being the New York Times from 1984-1987.

It's great to see the general fan being exposed to statistics that track better with actual performance. Hopefully, the first of a trend.

The Sabermetric league leaders board will appear weekly, on Tuesdays on a space-available basis through the season.
