The start of the 2020 MLB season has been postponed as the Wuhan pneumonia epidemic in China continues to ravage the United States. Therefore, sports columnists like us have also fallen into a dry period of subject matter. In the state where there are no games and no data for people to talk about, reviewing the past and examining history seems to be a good option under the helpless situation. Under such circumstances, it is not surprising that Wang Jianmin has once again become a topic of discussion in the domestic sports arena. In the past month, there have been three discussions in the sports field , and even the seemingly unrelated PTT NBA version has 18 articles comparing Wang Jianmin.
And the Jeremy Lin boom article . Whether telemarketing list you search from Google or Youtube , there are also many recent related reports and videos. After reading many lively discussions, I think there is still one topic worth exploring in depth - that is, how strong was Wang Jianmin in his heyday? At the time, perhaps this was not a big deal, but with the advent of more and more advanced data in recent years, and the "review" or criticism of traditional thinking, what a good pitcher Wang Jianmin, who left a remarkable achievement in the Yankees, was.
Still depends on the method and angle of data usage. Therefore, this article will try to clarify some questions: How should Wang Jianmin's strength be evaluated in the modern era when the player evaluation model is very different from the past? Was the achievement of being selected as the second place in the Cy Young Award that year, is it too much or is it worthy of the name? Is he lucky, just born in the right era, or does he really have two brushes? First of all, in order to analyze Wang Jianmin's status in the hearts of most Taiwan fans, it is unavoidable to talk about the data of "winning votes" first. Even though many viewers can already recognize in 2020, winning pitch is a statistic that is not highly correlated with pitcher strength.
