A few weeks back, YoDaddyWags introduced the expected win vs. the expected loss based on Gamescores when evaluating potential Hall of Fame candidates. I was intrigued by the concept and curious how it applied to the 2013 season.
2013 in Review
Cleveland Indians leadoff man Michael Bourn saw his stolen base success fall greatly in 2014, his first season in the American League. Does changing leagues tend to hurt base stealers?
You might not think a .293 BABIP is all that bad, but considering their team speed and the type of contact they made, the 2013 Indians should have done even better. We'll take a look at why.
Little was expected when the Cleveland Indians signed Scott Kazmir to a minor league deal last winter, but he turned in a better season than anyone had any business hoping for. Now the team must decide how much it's worth to have him back in 2014.
