FINAL GAME
McManus made his big league debut on September 25, 1920, for the Browns as a third baseman, hitting fifth behind George Sisler and Baby Doll Jacobson. He smacked a triple for his first major league hit. The following spring, with only 144 professional games under his belt, McManus earned a starting position. Initially he was at the hot corner, but the club thought his arm was better suited for the shorter throws from second and he switched in late May. Thus started a career as one of the better infielders in the American League in the 1920s and early 1930s. Clearly, considering his meteoric rise to the top level of baseball, McManus was a natural athlete who took to the game quickly. He played 15 years, and was a player-manager for a few seasons at the end of his career.

— 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).
