THT Dartboard: Week Seventeen

Dartboard
Divisional Picture


Dartboard

Welcome to The Hardball Times Dartboard, our weekly attempt to rank all the teams in baseball. The Dartboard Factor is how many wins a team would be expected to have at the end of the season if it played a neutral schedule. Next to that, you’ll find the Dartboard Factor from the previous week. An explanation of our method can be found here.

Once again, for hitters, the standard triple slash stats are shown first, followed by a comparison of the strikeouts and free passes. Free passes here includes hit by pitches and excludes intentional walks. Lastly, a link to wOBA if you are not familiar with it. The stats for the pitchers should then be self-explanatory.
