Description

In Major League Baseball, Wins Above Replacement (WAR) is a measure to determine how many wins a baseball player could contribute to the team in comparison to a replacement player. It is considered a highly debatable topic among baseball fans to determine its role in understanding how well a baseball player is performing. In this research, we will statistically analyze the variable WAR and its relationship with baseball players’ performance. This study focuses on studying the 2017 reported baseball players’ salaries as a dependent variable with the WAR measure and other performance measures as predictor variables.
