|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Brian Downing made 9,309 plate appearances. Downing was worth 51.6 Wins Above Replacement and 21.0 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 51.6 WAR becomes 55.0 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 21.0 WAA becomes 24.2 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Downing 98.6 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).
Brian Downing has a Hall Rating of 92, making him close to the Hall of Stats borderline—but still on the outside.
