There is a plethora of baseball information on the internet, and a lot of it is awesome for baseball fans to read, listen and watch.
I just found out about a great baseball site called the Hall Of Stats and on this site, you can find a lot of great info on the Phillies and players in baseball from every era of baseball.
The site measures the worthiness of players using advanced stats and the results are amazing. What goes into making a player a Hall of Fame candidate? Check out this site and read on and you’ll find out.
The Phillies history is a rich amalgamation of many great players through out the years from the inception of the team in 1883. On the Hall of Stats site, you’ll be able to see the greatest Phillies players ever, not from a standpoint of mere opinion, because everyone has their own, you can make a case one way or another. Here on this site, the measurement of baseball success can’t hide, and with it you get the results you’re after.
Consider two players that are included in the list from Hall of Stats. The players are still playing with the Phillies, Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley. They are 2 of the greatest Phillies ever, as measured by Wins Above Replacement. Look at the other names of the greatest Phillies ever, and you’ll see some Hall of Fame players in the mix.
Check out this interesting site at HallOfStats.com, they were featured at the local SABR 43 convention that was held this year in Philadelphia, which by the way has a lot of local flavor of baseball talk that was discussed during the convention. You can find an interesting discussion about Philadelphia baseball history here at the SABR site, I am trying to get some of that over the my baseball podcasts website at BaseballPodcasts.net – so we’ll see if that can happen as well.
