"I'll tell you what stat I will be paying attention to: WINS. You can take all your talk of walk rates and OPS and ISO (whatever the heck that is!) and stick it where the sun don't shine. There's only one stat that matters at the end of the day and that is wins. You don't win, none of that stuff means anything. So do me a favor and spare me your fancy schmancy statistical analysis--leave that stuff to the nerds with their nerdy nerdness. All that matters, and you should probably write this down seeing as how you've somehow forgotten what's important here, is wins...." --Nate De Graaf's Grandpa, April 11, 2022
My game summaries are a quantification of the winning point of view quoted above. For each win, position players earn stars based on their individual success in helping to score one more run than the opposing team (all insurance runs are irrelevant to the win). For pitchers (and position players who make extraordinary plays), stars are awarded based on how many outs they get in wins. For losses, no stars are awarded to any players, only "black marks".
