Matthew Carruth Writes Several Tons Of Great Stuff
You probably know by now that we’re big fans of Lookout Landing. Jeff Sullivan does yeoman’s work over there, and if you read USSM, you really should be reading LL too.
Well, recently, Matthew Carruth (who also edits and writes for the Hardball Times) has posted a string of informative entries over there that everyone should read. It’s just really good stuff.
GPA: A better OPS: I don’t totally agree with him here and find GPA to be not particularly useful, but it’s still worth reading.
The BaseRuns Model: BaseRuns is awesome but kinda nerdy. If you don’t mind being somewhat nerdy, click away.
Mariners OF defense: 2003-2007: Inspired by Derek’s post on the same subject. Must read.
Trying to Track True Team Talent: Another fundamental article that sets the groundwork for real analysis.
Seeing the World Pitch By Pitch: Again, absolutely essential reading for a better understanding of how pitching works.
We think we put out a pretty regular stream of good content here, but by no means do we have the market cornered. Matthew’s work is simply outstanding and deserves a larger audience.
