    Default Looking for more details of key formulas

    I am trying to learn more about the terms used by BaseballHQ to describe players' abilities, so I've been poking around on the Glossary pages. In some cases the glossary has been very helpful, giving the formulas for some of the ratings and the high and low benchmarks for those ratings. But in other cases very little information is provided. For example, for "eye," the only information provided is that it refers to batting eye, which was already pretty obvious. Similarly, the only thing it says about "dom" is that it relates to pitchers' dominance, but it doesn't explain what that means or how it is calculated, or provide any frame of reference for determining a good or bad rating.

    Is there another place on the website where the analytical terms are defined more thoroughly?

    "Dom" isn't some brilliant stat HQ made up; it's just K/9. Eye is (batters walks)/(batter's strikeouts).

    If you scroll down from the quick glossary definitions to the full glossary, all formulas are given in the extended version.

    Admittedly it's not the most intuitive layout. No reason for self-abuse.
