Over the course of his career,
Rafael Palmeiro
made 12,046 plate appearances.
Palmeiro
was worth
71.8 Wins Above Replacement
and 30.0 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 71.8 WAR becomes
72.9 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 30.0 WAA becomes 33.4 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA.
This gives Palmeiro 132.3 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).
