Figure 3. MLB Teams, 1871–1935, Win Percentage and League Adjusted ROT. Includes League Alliance teams, 1877, and the IA and NA from 1877 to 1880. A scatter plot of team winning percentage against team league adjusted ROT displays no pattern of success for teams who pushed the ROT envelope, echoing comments by David Smith at the SABR 41 National Convention.
