FINAL GAME

WHO IS Mule Suttles?

George Suttles was a large man, built a lot like Andrés Galarraga, and he used one of the heaviest bats in history, a 50-ounce behemoth that he swung fast enough to launch a lot of home runs in the negro leagues. In his best years, with the St. Louis Stars, Suttles was a big swinger, ala Cecil Fielder: missing a lot, but when he connected, he sent the baseball long distances. Ray Dandridge insisted that Suttles hit a ball over the wall at Parkway Field in Louisville that traveled more than 500 feet.

When a tense part of the game would arise, Mule Suttles’ teammates would often yell “Kick Mule!” when he came to the plate. His high, deep home runs at Stars Park in St. Louis were talked about for years by fans who attended games to see Mule swing his heavy stick.

— 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).
