WHO IS Jimmy Dykes?

Sort of a Forrest Gump of baseball: he played during the Babe Ruth era and witnessed many of the greatest players of all time; he starred for the A’s when they captured three straight flags under Connie Mack; he played in Chicago and was in uniform for baseball’s first annual All-Star Game; his managerial career spanned four decades, and he remains the winningest skipper in White Sox history; he was the first manager to win 1,000 games and not win a pennant. He succeeded Mack as manager of the A’s, ending an era, and Dykes was the first man to manage the Baltimore Orioles in the American League. He was a teammate of Ty Cobb, played against Ted Williams, and managed against Mickey Mantle.

— Explanation of Advanced Statistics —

Wins Above Replacement is a non-standardized sabermetric statistic developed to sum up a player’s total contributions to his team. A player’s WAR value is claimed to be the number of additional wins his team has achieved above the number of expected team wins if that player were substituted with a replacement-level player:

A player’s best seven seasons according to his Wins Above Replacement (WAR). Also called LONG PEAK.

A player’s best five consecutive seasons according to his Wins Above Replacement (WAR). Also called PLAYER PRIME.

A player’s best three seasons according to his Wins Above Replacement (WAR). Also called SHORT PEAK.

A player’s Wins Above Replacement (WAR) per season (calculated for 162 games).

Advanced statistical method devised by Bill James. A Win Share represents one-third of a team win, by definition, and takes into account defense, offense, baserunning, park effects, and level of competition, era, and many other factors.

A player’s best seven seasons according to his Win Shares. A measure of LONG PEAK.

A player’s best five consecutive seasons according to his Win Shares. A measure of a player’s PRIME.

A player’s best three seasons according to his Win Shares. A measure of a player’s SHORT PEAK.

A player’s Win Shares per season (calculated for 162 games).
