The 1999 Season as seen through the Prism of Player Won-Lost Records



Next in my continuing series of looking at individual seasons through the prism of Player won-lost records is the 1999 season.

The Best of 1999

I calculate Player won-lost records two ways: pWins, which tie to team wins and eWins, which control for context and the ability of one's teammates. For players with more pWins than eWins, their Player wins contributed to more team wins than one might expect; for players with more eWins than pWins, just the opposite is true: their Player wins translated into fewer team wins than expected. Or more briefly: a player with more pWins than eWins was better in context, a player with more eWins than pWins was worse in context.

The top 10 players in pWins above Positional Average and Replacement Level were as follows.

American League

The 1999 American League MVP vote was not the BBWAA's finest moment.

Pedro Martinez pitched 213.1 innings with 313 strikeouts (and only 37 walks), an ERA of 2.07 (in a league with an ERA of 4.86), and a traditional won-lost record of 23-4.

Derek Jeter batted .349 with 134 runs scored and 102 RBI while playing shortstop for a team that won a league-high 98 games and would end the season winning their third World Series in four years.
As the above tables show, Martinez and Jeter were easily the two best players in the American League (if not the major leagues) in 1999. Yet, they finished 2nd and 6th in MVP voting.

Pedro Martinez's career record, as measured by Player won-lost records, is presented next.

National League

As for the National League, the top players, as measured by Player won-lost records, are something of a surprise.
Mike Hampton
Mike Hampton is best remembered these days as an underperforming, oft-injured pitcher who ended up being one of the worst free-agent signings ever. Because of how Hampton's career ended (1,007.2 IP, 4.84 ERA, $110.4 million in salary from 2001 - 2010), it's easy to forget what earned him that free-agent contract in the first place.

This season is what earned him that contract. In 1999, Mike Hampton pitched 239 innings with a 2.90 ERA (and remember, this was the late 1990s - the NL ERA that year was 4.56), and amassed a traditional won-lost record of 22-4. And he also batted .311/.373/.432. In 1999, Hampton finished second in Cy Young voting to Randy Johnson. Based on Player won-lost records, Hampton had a very strong case as the best pitcher in the National League in 1999. In fact, based on the above tables, Mike Hampton has a case as the best player in the National League in 1999, regardless of position (he finished 21st in MVP voting).

Mike Hampton's career record, as measured by Player won-lost records, is presented next.

Robin Ventura
Based on pWins over either positional average or replacement level, Hampton's chief competition for best player in the National League is something of a surprise: New York Mets third baseman Robin Ventura.

Ventura's raw statistics were very good in 1999: he batted over .300 for the only time in his career (.301) with career highs in OBP (.379), SLG (.529), and, of course, OPS (.908). He hit 32 home runs, drove in 120 runs (8th in the NL) and won a Gold Glove (the last of his six career Gold Gloves).

One reason why Ventura looks so much better in pWins than he does in other measures, even other sabermetric measures (Baseball-Reference shows Ventura 6th in the NL in WAR, for example) is because pWins tie to team wins. In Mets victories, Ventura batted .357/.427/.659 with 99 RBI in 96 games. With runners in scoring position, Ventura batted .340/.430/.535 (vs. .285/.352/.534 with nobody on). With the bases loaded, Ventura batted .529/.600/1.659 with 3 grand slams and 24 RBI in 20 plate appearances.

Ventura looking better in context was not just true in 1999, but was true of his career in general. For his career, he batted .340/.370/.676 with the bases loaded with 18 grand slams in 238 plate appearances. That puts him 5th all-time in career major-league grand slams; his 294 career home runs rank 140th.

Robin Ventura's career record, as measured by Player won-lost records, is presented next.

1999 Postseason

The 1999 World Series was the fifth World Series appearance of the decade by the Atlanta Braves. It was only the third World Series appearance of the decade by the New York Yankees, but they already led the Braves in World Series wins for the decade, 2 to 1, including a head-to-head win three years earlier. The winner of the 1999 matchup would have a clear claim as the best team of the 1990s. The New York Yankees won their third World Series in four years and solidified their claim as the best team of the 1990s.

The best players of the 1999 postseason, as measured by Player won-lost records, are presented next.

For relief pitchers, context-neutral records may not be the best measure of how good they are, as context can matter a great deal, depending on how a pitcher is used. Here are the top relief pitchers of 1999 in context, in terms of pWins and pWOPA.

Noteworthy Players of 1999

Finally, let's take a look at some players who had noteworthy 1999 seasons.

Notable Debuts
It is too early for any players who debuted in 1999 to have been elected to the Hall of Fame. And honestly, I am not sure that there are any players who debuted in 1999 who are obvious or even likely Hall-of-Fame candidates.

Probably the players with the two best careers of players who debuted in 1999 are Tim Hudson and Lance Berkman, both of whom probably deserve serious consideration for the Hall of Fame when they become eligible.

The next table compares the careers of Tim Hudson and Lance Berkman, as measured by Player won-lost records.
