WADJ: Wins Above Derek Jeter.
To see the data click the link. Thanks to Eric Weiss for the data on Williams, Schmidt, Mantle, Dickey, Berra and A-Rod. The Jeter breakdown is from a SABR-L post by Andrew Milner. Eric, how about starting your own blog? It would be great.
Odd that Derek Jeter is the only one of seven famous players who had no impact on his team's on field bottom line. The Yankee winning percentage is the same both with and without Jeter.
Mike Schmidt had the biggest impact: .078.
So what's the deal with Jeter?
