Overview

This book supplements my research for Hardball Retrospective, providing retroactive standings based on Wins Above Replacement (WAR) and Win Shares (WS) for each "original" team over the past three seasons (2014-2016). Team totals from 2010 - 2013 are included for reference purposes.In "Hardball Retrospective: Evaluating Scouting and Development Outcomes for the Modern-Era Franchises", I placed every ballplayer in the modern era (from 1901-2013) on their original team. I calculated revised standings for every season based entirely on the performance of each team's "original" players. I discuss every team's "original" players and seasons at length along with organizational performance with respect to the Amateur Draft (or First-Year Player Draft), amateur free agent signings and other methods of player acquisition. Season standings, WAR and Win Shares totals for the "original" teams are compared against the "actual" team results to assess each franchise's scouting, development and general management skills.
