BNTV Saber Shorts: wRC+ is an Awesome Stat


Because we routinely use advanced statistics and sabermetrics around here, and because not everyone is interested in reading up on the concepts around the web, I thought it would be helpful for BN’ers for me to put together a series of short videos on some of the most important sabermetric ideas. You can see all of the Saber Short videos, as well as others, here at the BNTV YouTube page.


Today’s video is on wRC+ (weighted runs created plus), which is right there alongside wOBA as the most impactful single offensive statistic right now. Bonus – this video features sparkling action (no, sorry, not Kris Bryant):

And, because it’s a related stat and you may have missed it, here’s the wOBA video from last week (for other videos, go to the BNTV YouTube page already):
