I could, paint, but at this point I'm not exactly sure what the payoff would be for the reader. I guess from where I sit the folks who want to learn about stuff ask about it, have full access to formulas via readily accessible web sites, or want to do their own work so they're sure of the accuracy. That leaves me either covering very simple stuff like OPS, posting primer addresses that anyone can find using a Google search, or giving instructions on how to run correlation checks.
At this point, I might suggest that we're beyond the stats 101 subject and have moved into a stats 201. My question would be how many folks are actually looking to move past things like OPS, WHIP, ERA, etc. If there are enough, I certainly wouldn't recommend that I be the only contributor as we've got other folks with at least as good an understanding of advanced metrics as I (although I appreciate the compliment).
Post a poll. Might be good to guage interest first.
