The V-Ratings (The Ultimate Offensive Metric In MLB) – Monument Park Worthy?

by James Vlietstra

May 26, 2021


Introducing V-Rating:

The Ultimate Offensive Metric In MLB

Background: I have sifted through the numbers to determine who the best offensive players have been in Major League history by using runs produced, total bases, walks, hit by pitches, net stolen bases, grounding into double plays, and sacrifices to determine the most productive players per at bat.

I call this new formula The V-Rating.

TODAY I provide, in rank order from highest to lowest, a detailed list of Yankees hitters who are not (yet) honored in Monument Park.

Take a look and share your comments below!
