WHO IS Wally Moses?

Born in Vidalia, Wally Moses was extremely fast, so fast that he was called “The Georgia Express.” He was signed by Augusta in the Palmetto League in 1931 after Ty Cobb saw Moses play in a sandlot game. In his first professional season, fans in Augusta would get excited every time Wally got on first base. Moses worked out a signal where he would take off his cap as he got his lead, which told the cheering fans that he was about to run to second. “All the catchers knew when I was going,” Moses said, “but I still got 22 stolen bases that way.”

— 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).
