I am not sure how. I am not sure why. But there is someone who has calculated that Joey Votto actually HURT the team today.
There is some formula out there that has a 4-5, 6 RBI, 4 run scored day with three home runs including a walk off, 2 out, 2 strike, one pitch from losing the game walk off Grand Slam and puts it in the “Negative” column.
Someone is checking his Base/Out/Contact/Fielded/Produced/Reduced/Replacement/Potential Average and realize that today’s game actually brought it down.
And we all know the true value comes from a player’s BOCFPRRPA is the best unit to measure their productivity.
Unless you use ADJUSTED Base/Out/Contact/Fielded/Produced/Reduced/Replacement/Potential Average which takes into account whether or not it rained that day.
