Managerial Stats Glossary
The manager, player, team and league statlines are now dramatically different than when the site first launched, so a comprehensive list of the stats would take far longer and would likely be much less useful than previously. So we have implemented a tooltip solution that shows you a description of the statistic when you hold your mouse over the header abbreviation for the stat. You can try it below.
We also have implemented a sorting feature. When the header abbreviation is red (and this is true of all red text), you can click the header to sort by that column. In many cases the table contains partial season (for a traded player or two team manager) and full-season data. When this is the case, we hide the partial seasons in the sorted results, and provide another tooltip to bring the partial seasons back. Occasionally, there is a select box toggle that allows you to hide or show players who may not have met some minimum qualification such as 502 PAs for the batting title. This only comes into play when sorting on ratio stats like on-base percentage, but not counting stats like home runs.
The CSV and PRE tooltips provide a means to get comma-separated values suitable for loading into excel, and pre-formatted text that might work better in things like message boards and e-mails.
When a stat is unavailable its season entry should be blank, rather than zero. This may not always be the case, but it is what we've tried to do.
