The Red Sox Hall of wWAR

Beyond the Box Score's Adam Darowski has a project he runs called the Hall of wWAR. Essentially, it's what Cooperstown would look like were it populated by baseball's very best, from the perspective of wins above replacement. Darowski has tweaked the system over time to represent historic WAR accurately, and the result is a pretty neat look at the game's best: just 70 percent of the actual Hall of Fame is contained within the hypothetical walls of the Hall of wWAR.

Darowski often creates side projects out of this larger one, and his most recent is the Red Sox Hall of wWAR. Darowski found that the Red Sox have been more accurate in their assessment of the organization's very best than actual Cooperstown has, and that there are plenty of current and recently departed players who are on their way to being deserving as well. It's worth checking out both Darowski's write-up of his findings, and the visual representation found at Hall of Stats. Pictures! Who doesn't love pictures?
