Big-money free agents

[Mallett]’s a top-five pick. His growth since the Liberty Bowl game last season is distinct. Bob Petrino has done a great job with Mallett. Of all the quarterback prospects in this year’s draft, I think he has the greatest upside.

Wednesday's "Ask Vic" Vic has been known to hint at a thing or two in his day. I think this says something.

What is the best solution?

Free agents seem to be avoiding the A's like the plague.  Jack Cust has been unceremoniously dumped into the free agent pool to be picked at and prodded by the likes of the Pittsburgh Pirates. ...

I love advanced stats, but Win Shares seems like the kind of stat that no one completely understands unless they’ve read the Dean Oliver book. I tried to figure it out, and it still doesn’t make a ton of sense. How does the league average pace have any impact on how much a player helps his particular team win? It’s marginal in reference to HIS team, not to ALL the teams. I don’t quite get it, so maybe I shouldn’t argue on that point. Doesn’t it seem like it’d make sense to just use the difference between ORtg and DRtg? Kevin Martin last year had an ORtg of 115, but a DRtg of 117. Doesn’t that mean he gave up more points by being on the floor than he made up on the offensive end? Or am I again screwing up the stats? Someone help!

My attempt at fixing PER

2

Very short...all I did was the following: DPER = PER / (DRTG/100) REBFIX = (-0.1 * RPG) REBFIXPER = REBFIX + PER REBFIXDPER = REBFIX + DPER The differences between the rankings are also listed. This very obviously is NOT an exact science of any kind, but I figured it was more useful to me than just leaving PER flawed. Let me know what you think.

I know all kinds of stuff about advanced baseball stats; however, I won't pretend like I know how advanced basketball stats work. I'm particularly interested in how defensive statistics are used. If anyone has any worthwhile links to share or is willing to do a writeup about how defensive stats work, I'm sure there are plenty of people besides me that would be interested. I would be very grateful. Thanks!
