|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, David Cone pitched 2,898 innings and made 470 plate appearances. Cone was worth 62.1 Wins Above Replacement (61.6 as a pitcher and 0.7 as a hitter) and 36.3 Wins Above Average (35.5 as a pitcher and 0.7 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 62.1 WAR becomes 65.9 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 36.3 WAA becomes 39.3 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Cone 136.6 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).
David Cone has a Hall Rating of 128, making him a member of the Hall of Stats.
