-How much value does a guy like Bob Bougher or Brendan Witt
an APBA league if he does not hit? Not much.
Well, now that's an interesting question. Unfortunately, as
I mentioned in my last note, I don't have a lot of time for
experimentation these days. But I have some definite ideas
as to how to answer that question. If someone has some free
time to simulate a bunch of seasons under controlled
conditions, please drop me a note (kraushaus@...
Basically we'll want to take the generic teams I created
(all ratings identical for all players) and change one
team's d-men to PHY 4 and the other team's d-men to PHY 2.
If a Witt or a Boughner is worthwhile in APBA, we'll see a
significant advantage for the team with PHY 4 d-men. Then
we'll run the same sims with all PHY 5 vs. PHY 1 and see if
it becomes more extreme.
Incidentally, in case you haven't heard about it before, the
generic teams are available on the OHTL web site.
They're good for running simulations
in a controlled environment.
