|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Sam McDowell pitched 2,492 innings and made 851 plate appearances. McDowell was worth 41.9 Wins Above Replacement (43.1 as a pitcher and -1.3 as a hitter) and 20.1 Wins Above Average (21.7 as a pitcher and -1.3 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 41.9 WAR becomes 42.5 adjWAR. Then, WAA is adjusted by ignoring negative seasons (thus, truly capturing a player’s peak seasons) and making similar adjustments for catchers and relief pitchers. After these adjustments, the 20.1 WAA becomes 28.2 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives McDowell 93.3 wWAR. wWAR is then converted to Hall Rating. A Hall Rating of 100 represents the Hall of Stats borderline (similar to OPS+ or wRC+, where 100 represents league average).
Sam McDowell has a Hall Rating of 87, leaving him short of induction to the Hall of Stats.
