Sabermetrics comes from the acronym for the Society for American Baseball Research, SABR. Sabermetrics is the statistical study of baseball; techniques of probability and statistics are used to discern real trends in baseball [for example, the qualities of hitters] from those that just seem to happen [for example, the quality of a player to "hit in the clutch"]. As such, sabermetrics is an oft-debated field of study.

UC-Berkeley's Industrial Engineering and Operations Research department has created their own daily calculation metric for analyzing team record performance based on historical data. Results include the number of wins needed to date to guarantee a first-place division finish or playoff run, as well as to avoid elimination from first or the playoffs. Calculations provided thanks to the research of Professor Dorit S. Hochbaum.
