 Plays Quiz not verified by Sporcle

The quiz is inspired by Bill James' recent essay criticizing WAR for its failure to consider situational value: https://www.billjamesonline.com/judge_and_altuve/. Situational Wins Above Replacement (sWAR) is just a quick-and-dirty way of incorporating clutch performance into WAR. (2) sWAR takes a player's actual WAR and adds the difference between their Win Probability Added (WPA) and Run Expectancy Wins (REW). (3) Logic of sWAR: REW evaluates each plate appearance according to the inning-level game situation: the location of baserunners and number of outs. WPA looks at how each PA affects the outcome of the game. A positive difference between WPA and REW indicates a player who performs better than expected in clutch, late-inning situations. sWAR assigns this as extra credit to a player's context-neutral WAR value.
