Bill James' Teammate Score
“All of us are to one degree or another defined by the relationship we bear to others.” – Bill James.
The Teammates Score was developed to answer the question “Who were Player X’s main teammates?” As an example, consider the case of Ted Williams.
For each Boston player, in each season, we multiply his Win Shares (WS) total by Williams’ total for that season. Then add them up over all the seasons that they played together. For instance, in 1951, Williams had 34 WS and Dom DiMaggio 21. So the Williams- DiMaggio duo scores (34x21= 714) for 1951. The next year, Williams had 1 WS and DiMaggio 16. For 1952, the duo scores only (1x16 =16). Totaling over all the years that Williams and DiMaggio played together gives 7,904.
Since 1900, 21 pairs of teammates have scored at least 8,000:
Note the absence of Tris Speaker, Stan Musial and Eddie Collins, who are in the top ten of the individual WS list. Gehrig, in contrast, is 21st on the individual list but appears three times here. Neither Bagwell nor Biggio is in the top 60 of the individual list.
The choice of 1900 as a start date is important. If we go back further, we would include Wagner and Clarke’s years with the Louisville Colonels, 1897-99. This would make them, rather than Ruth and Gehrig, the all-time leaders, with 12,960. Their Pirates dates are given as 1900-15, but they scored nothing at all for the years 1912-15 when Clarke was the rarely-playing Pirates manager. Similarly, Wagner and Leach score 10,597 if we include Louisville, 1898-99.
Part of the reason for starting at 1900 is that in the 19th century, pitchers picked up huge Win Shares totals, making comparison difficult. The second highest score by two teammates who began before 1900 is 11,717 by Bob Caruthers and Dave Foutz, who pitched together in St. Louis and Brooklyn from 1884 to 1891.
Here is a list that shows the MT for about a thousand players. The dates are approximate. Where two players have each other as a MT (e.g. Ruth and Gehrig), this is represented by a hyphen.
