#MakeoverMonday 2021 Week 39 - MLB All-Time Offensive Wins Above Replacement

No comments
This is the final installment of Makeover Monday as a community project and I decided to go back to the very first week of Makeover Monday in 2016 to use as our viz to makeover this week. It's looking at a complicated stat in baseball called Wins Above Replacement, which is basically a measure of how good a player is that an average player that would replace him.

There are several, even more confusing stats included. I thought the easiest way to compare them would be with a scatterplot. So I made an interactive scatterplot that highlights players that are above the average of the top 200 players. 

If you watch the Watch Me Viz video (below), you'll see how I used table calcs to highlight those players and also count the number of players in that quadrant. You'll learn how to use parameters to create a dynamic scatterplot, plus some other bits along the way.

Thanks for coming along on this 300 week journey with me. I hope you have developed your skills and become better at your work. Until next time...
