|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Bob Friend pitched 3,611 innings and made 1,299 plate appearances. Friend was worth 40.8 Wins Above Replacement (46.8 as a pitcher and -5.9 as a hitter) and 5.8 Wins Above Average (11.8 as a pitcher and -5.9 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 40.8 WAR becomes 42.0 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 5.8 WAA becomes 18.7 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Friend 75.7 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).
Bob Friend has a Hall Rating of 71, leaving him short of induction to the Hall of Stats.
