|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Andy Messersmith pitched 2,230 innings and made 826 plate appearances. Messersmith was worth 40.3 Wins Above Replacement (37.6 as a pitcher and 2.6 as a hitter) and 20.9 Wins Above Average (18.3 as a pitcher and 2.6 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 40.3 WAR becomes 41.1 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 20.9 WAA becomes 20.3 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Messersmith 77.6 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).
Andy Messersmith has a Hall Rating of 73, leaving him short of induction to the Hall of Stats.
