baseball-reference sim scores updated for 2009

Baseball-reference.com did their postseason update today.

The most entertaining part of the update is the sim scores and age-based sim scores are now updated through the end of 2009.  Most are familiar with Sim Scores.  They are a Bill James invention but they were purposely designed to mimic HOF induction behavior circa 1990 or so.  Because of that, they don't include park/era effect and tend to rely mainly on the more traditional counting stats.  His thinking at the time was that the BBWAA/VC didn't incorporate those things.  So, sometimes you get some quirky comps, but even the quirky comps can be fun and even a bit telling (e.g. Jason Tyner's comps are predominantly dead-ball era players).

 

Caveats aside, here are the latest comps for our Twins:
