If the batter generated 10 extra PA, for instance, he would get credit for 10*Lg(R/PA) additional runs, which are added to his RC.<BR/><BR/>For LW, the "+" adjustment should be enough. PAR was designed to be the parallel to the "+" adjustment for theoretical teams, since you don't just assume that the additional PA add a fixed run value; they add a dynamic run value based (which of course BsR gives you). <BR/><BR/>So you answered your own question correctly, I think. Use the "+" with a linear weights RC formula, use nothing with a linear weights above average formula, and use PAR with a TT formula.phttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18057215403741682609noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-12133335.post-36959270160504970502008-12-07T18:47:00.000-05:002008-12-07T18:47:00.000-05:00Is PAR R+/O+?I believe that I have been confusing ...Is PAR R+/O+?<BR/><BR/>I believe that I have been confusing PAR with R+/PA. I have been using PAR, thinking that it was R+/PA. <BR/><BR/>Is it OK to apply PAR to an ERP style linear weights formula.

I have never actually sat down and figured out exactly how I would go about adjusting for it, since I never actually use the differential method. I'll think about it and see if I can come up with a good answer, as opposed to my default answer which would be to multiply the player's differential BsR by PAR.<BR/><BR/>You can change the margins by clicking on "Customize" at the top of your blog (if you are logged in).

On your website, you incorporated PAR into a Theoretical Team. I was wondering if you knew how to do this using the method of subtracting the player's batting line from the league batting line.<BR/><BR/>How did you get the margins wider on your blog?terpsfan101noreply@blogger.com
