Explain patent pending
Yesterday I reviewed some excellent work by Patrick in regards to the “low usage, high efficiency” player myth. The basic claim is two-fold. Many claim that Wins Produced overvalues these players. And with that claim comes the implication that being this type of player is easy. Patrick pointed out very simply that these type of players are rare and I showed that they were also not the players leading the way for top Wins Produced players.
Hoopdon, who comments frequently, wrote a follow up post. His goal was to explain how low usage, high efficiency players benefit by playing by high usage players or good systems. I am going to do a critique of his post for this post (meta, I know!) and hopefully explain some of the problems with trying to explain things the way Hoopdon did.
I’ll be honest, I was upset when I started reading Hoopdon’s post
Many claim efficient low-usage players can be vastly overrated by WP, while high-usage less efficient players can be underrated. I don’t generally agree with the premise, however there are certain cases where it can be true. This isn’t so much a function of WP being crap, but like in any holistic statistical metric, certain data points will fall outside the norm for whatever reason.
