    Expanded Standings

    WAR wins are pretty much 2nd-order pythagorean wins. position WAR is calculated from in-game xRAA and my own defensive analysis. Pitching WAR is calculated as a split between FIP/RA9.

    Re: Expanded Standings

    I always liked the expanded standings back then when I still was in AAA. I believe my team were the Nashville Sounds, if I remember correctly: not looking too good for them.

    But I have a question: I think I remember WAR means Wins above replacement, doesn't it? Now this table suggests even the worst team had 18.5 wins above replacement. Replacement level is something like a quadruple-A-player, someone going north and south between the Show and the minors. So far, so good. But I wondered if in real MLB also all teams have positive aggregate WAR like in here?

    Not really, and even in CSFBL I think this is pretty rare! other leagues I've done this for usually have a few teams kicking it in the 50-win range (47 wins is about replacement level over a full season) just like MLB. it just means there's a lot of parity in the league, like only 10 teams project as being above .500 here and the lowest actual win total is 65. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    it would be pretty rare for a team to have negative WAR though, you'd have to REALLY mismanage things to not even have a couple average guys. which is why win totals tend to bottom out around 50-55 wins

    Interesting, thanks for the post. I'd agree with Scranton's assessment too. The pitching staff is terrible, hence why I was trying to trade for bodies all season.
