Cliff Otto - Baseball StatistorianPosted: Sat Dec 17, 2005 6:36 pm Post subject: Cliff Otto - Baseball Statistorian Cliff Otto - Baseball Statistorian Cliff Otto is a statistorian.A Red Sox fan for over 50 years, Otto has been a member of SABR for over 20 and a valuable contributor to SoSH and redsoxnation.net for the past two.A New Hampshire native who now resides in Alexandria, VA, Otto also "collects" ball parks, having seen professional games in 102 different parks in 17 leagues and 29 states, plus Washington, DC and two Canadian provinces.Now semi-retired, Otto spends a fair amount of his time chasing birds with his camera and playing pool. RedSoxNation: Let's start with how you developed a love-affair with baseball and the Red Sox. Cliff Otto: I grew up in the small town of Hill, in central New Hampshire.Cliff Otto: I went to my first game at Fenway Park on August 21, 1952 (Boston 4, Cleveland 1) and I learned from the scorecard that one could keep accounts of games.Cliff Otto: I started watching the Red Sox in 1950, and the Siamese twin to rooting for the Red Sox was a dislike of the Yankees.Cliff Otto: I think the biggest limitation in evaluating players from different eras may be the changes in strategy.Cliff Otto: Lots of players, but limiting myself to Hall of Famers, Lloyd Waner comes to mind as one who was overrated.Cliff Otto: A player who belongs in the Hall of Fame, I think, is Dick Allen, but the writers did not like him.Cliff Otto: While there is no hard evidence, anecdotal evidence suggests that pitchers in bygone eras threw fewer pitches per batter than do today's pitchers.Cliff Otto: Yes and no.It depends on how many games the closer costs his team and also how hard his saves are.Cliff Otto: Gary Gillette and Pete Palmer have devised a rating system (Quality Relief) to reward and penalize relief pitchers according to their performances related to the base-out situations in which they enter the game.Cliff Otto: Some time ago, Mark Pankin did some work on lineup optimization using Markov Chain analyses that was included in one of Bill James's Abstracts and as presentations at SABR conventions.Cliff Otto: I spent the 1960s on active duty with USAF, mostly in Europe.Cliff Otto: The internet certainly has changed the way a lot of people approach baseball.Cliff Otto: That depends on whether politicians are involved.
