I'm working on a research paper and I need some help from the sabermetricians out there. I need

  1. A statistic that accurately tells how many runs a pitcher should have given up based on singles, 2B, 3B, HR, BB ect. that is NOT above replacement level. Any ideas?
  2. A statistic that accurately tells how many runs a fielder saved his team throughout the year, again NOT above replacement level

Frenchy not in today's lineup

Is he just bad or are they on the verge of a deal?

Whether you like it or not, Poe is coming to KC

I trust Pioli and Crennel's judgement. Now the question is, who for 2nd round? I would be so excited if we got Dwayne Allen. Anyone else?

Who takes the loss tonight?

It sure as shit isn't Chen. Was it the offenses' goose egg, Moustakas' getting cluelessness on defense, Crow, Holland, or Ned?

Chiefs have 17 million left

What do they do with it? Ultimately it is up to Pioli, but I honestly think they should put it in their pockets and save it for next offseason. We need to resign Bowe, Dorsey, and Albert. IMO, all...

So do we just assume that we didn't agree on a deal with Cotchery?

I haven't heard any news about free agency recently, besides the Franklin speculation. Did I miss something or is this just a quiet weekend? I was sure we would hear something about Cotchery

Just thought that this was funny. I saw it on twitter this morning.

Should we be pulling for Peyton to sign with Denver?

Honestly, I don't want him. Peyton will cost nearly 20 million dollars for about a year of play. If Denver spends that 20 mil and loses some of their own top FA because they are out of money, then...

Bringing sabermetrics to football and evaluating Peyton Manning

I just realized something. Correct me if I am wrong. Peyton was cut, so whichever team claims him, picks up his current contract, and Colts pay half of it? If so, Peyton's decision would not have anything to do with money. That was my only worry, that Pioli wouldn't pay the man. Well, if we only had to pay 10 mil or something around that, wouldn't we be the most logical team to sign with?

Hey guys I am working on a fanpost on how GM's predict and use statistics to figure out how they will be next year. I have a start that I figured out. I figured that Winning%=(Pts scored^.55)/(Pts scored^.55+ Pts allowed^.55) Does anybody see any flaws or know something that could be helpful? Any thoughts on what I should/ shouldn't do?

The ideal 2nd round pick for the Chiefs?

17

In the past, Pioli has drafted guys that have a solid college career and ruin their draft stock in the combine. This guy is the ideal pick for the Chiefs. It is a position of need, the Chiefs were big on him in the Senior Bowl, he is free falling. So what is he can't run 40 yards faster than the other guy? If he can play, he can play. I think he is the perfect guy for Pioli. Mike Adams to the Chiefs in the 2nd round, Book It!

Teams used to find their way into the playoffs with a sturdy run game, maybe a power back with a nice speady running back to complement him. Now that I mention it, this is the strategy the Chiefs...
