Runs and Winners

I have two articles up on THT this week. The first is a Closer Look at Run Estimation which runs some comparisons of various run estimators such as BaseRuns, Runs Created, and Batting Runs and the second is a review of Dayn Perry's new book Winners.

Also on THT this week you'll want to take a look at Dissecting Plate Discipline (Part 1) by David Appleman and Constructing Lineups by Dave Studeman. I like the former because it's the next step in the kind of analysis I wrote about on Baseball Analysts a few weeks ago and the second because once again it shows that contrary to our intuition, lineup construction simply isn't that important.
