|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Ted Lyons pitched 4,161 innings and made 1,729 plate appearances. Lyons was worth 70.8 Wins Above Replacement (66.8 as a pitcher and 3.8 as a hitter) and 31.0 Wins Above Average (27.4 as a pitcher and 3.5 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 70.8 WAR becomes 72.3 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 31.0 WAA becomes 33.3 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Lyons 132.2 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).
Ted Lyons has a Hall Rating of 124, making him a member of the Hall of Stats.
