|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Dan Brouthers made 7,691 plate appearances and pitched 23 innings. Brouthers was worth 78.8 Wins Above Replacement (79.8 as a hitter and -1.1 as a pitcher) and 53.9 Wins Above Average (55.1 as a hitter and -1.3 as a pitcher).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 78.8 WAR becomes 92.5 adjWAR. Then, WAA is adjusted by ignoring negative seasons (thus, truly capturing a player’s peak seasons) and making similar adjustments for catchers and relief pitchers. After these adjustments, the 53.9 WAA becomes 55.8 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Brouthers 192.9 wWAR. wWAR is then converted to Hall Rating. A Hall Rating of 100 represents the Hall of Stats borderline (similar to OPS+ or wRC+, where 100 represents league average).
Dan Brouthers has a Hall Rating of 181, making him not only a member of the Hall of Stats—but one of the very best players of all time.
