|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Bill Merritt made 1,556 plate appearances. Merritt was worth 1.9 Wins Above Replacement and -3.5 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 1.9 WAR becomes 2.5 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 -3.5 WAA becomes 0.8 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Merritt 3.9 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).
Bill Merritt has a Hall Rating of 4, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
