Astromets Mind now has a Minor League Guts page (there’s a permanent link at the top of the page), with linear weights and park factors from 2011-2015, presented as Fangraphs does their Guts page. Now that the numbers are up, I wanted to investigate how the Mets minor league parks played in 2015, and look for trends from the past 5 seasons. If you want a better idea of league context for the numbers below, I looked at the 2015 scoring environments of all affiliated leagues in my last post.
Park factors can give us a good idea of how a stadium played relative to the league, but it’s still more intuitive to look at rate stats, so I’ve included a Tableau worksheet with rate stats for each home park in the Mets system over the past 5 seasons (note, these are home park splits, not home team splits). I’m not including GCL data here, and I’ve included 2011-12 data for the Las Vegas 51s instead of the Buffalo Bisons because the Buffalo information would not really be relevant. I’ve also included a worksheet that allows you to look at wOBA by batted ball type for each of the Mets minor league stadiums over the past 5 seasons.
