Last year, I pored over spreadsheets and came up with a crude representation of the Indians' minor-league stats.

What a difference a year makes. Jeff Sackmann of Brew Crew Ball and Minor League Splits has made my spreadsheet completely irrelevant, and I couldn't be happier.

First of all, some notes (via Jeff):

  1. They are park-adjusted for the minor league park
  2. MLEs are adjusted for league in addition to level
  3. These are adjusted for major league park as well (though the MLEs at MinorLeagueSplits are not). I used Patriot's park factors:
  4. If you unfamilar with the concept of MLEs, here's a primer.
  5. The threshholds for inclusion are 20 IP for pitchers, 50 AB for batters.
  6. I've included FIP as an approximation of ERA (I don't do runs or earned runs on MinorLeagueSplits.com). Here's an introduction to the concept.
-----

Thanks again to Jeff for doing this. If you're looking for more, be sure to check out Brew Crew Ball, where you can access his minor-league database.

Stats after the jump....
