On the Monday April 6 edition of BangTheBook Radio, host Adam Burke answered a listener question about WAR, the calculation of the statistic, and how it accounts for different positions. If you ever wanted to know how WAR works, this was a great introduction into one of the most encompassing statistics in the world of baseball today.

Adam then followed up on Thursday’s discussion regarding Cluster Luck to bring it down to an individual level and highlight some pitchers that either got lucky or unlucky with runners in scoring position relative to the league averages or their own numbers. We’re building comprehensive statistical profiles of a lot of pitchers so that we’ll be ready to go when the games get back underway.

Join us on Tuesday for a quick chat with Brian Blessing of Sportsbook Radio and Vegas Hockey Hotline about the NFL Draft and the new-look golf schedule.
