The V-Rating System:

The Ultimate Offensive Metric In MLB



THIS IS THE COMPLETE COLLECTION OF ARTICLES EXPLAINING AND EXAMINING THE V-RATING SYSTEM DEVELOPED BY JAMES VLIETSTRA.

***

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.

Way back in high school math class I learned about algebra. The numerator is divided by the denominator. The formula used for determining a player’s V-Rating includes runs produced plus total bases plus net stolen bases plus walks plus hit-by-pitch minus grounded-into-double plays divided by plate appearances minus sacrifices.

The following is the complete collection of articles I wrote in this series:
