    Default Net Positive Outcomes

    Today's Facts/Flukes column on Miguel Sano refers to a metric called "Net Positive Outcomes":

    BHQ’s Net Positive Outcomes metric totals a hitter’s positive outcomes (hard contact, line drives, walks and HBP) as a percentage of PA, then subtracts negative outcomes (Ks, weak- and medium-contact flies and grounders, and pop-ups),
    This seems like an interesting measure! Is it tabulated anywhere on the site for all hitters?
    * 10-team AL-only, 4x4 hybrid categories, 14H/9P (+8 reserve draft), auction ($260 budget), 2 yr contracts wi/toppers, max 13 freezes, $100 FAAB
    * Hitting: OBP, HR, RP, SB+2B+2*3B
    * Pitching: ERA, W+QS+CG, S+H, 2*IP-baserunners

    I don't believe so. Those metrics were introduced by Patrick Davitt in some Master Notes columns in March 2017, although he hadn't settled on the name back then.

    Correct. You can catch up on some of those articles here (http://www.baseballhq.com/category/news/hq-now?page=2). We'll take a look this offseason about how to integrate the approach on the site. It's definitely some interesting work by PD (as usual).
