|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Jimmy Smith made 1,234 plate appearances. Smith was worth -3.5 Wins Above Replacement and -6.7 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the -3.5 WAR becomes -3.6 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 -6.7 WAA becomes 0.5 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Smith -2.7 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).
Jimmy Smith has a Hall Rating of -2, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
