The V-Ratings (The Ultimate Offensive Metric In MLB) – Two Recent Bad Teams

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.

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 2019 Tigers and 2020 Pirates were two of the worst teams from the last couple of years.

Today I will list all of the players on these teams along with their V-Ratings.
