Baseball advanced stats are significantly better and more useful than hockey ones. They also get much more complicated. Even the simpler ones like FIP and wOBA are much more complex formulas taking into account more things. CORSI if you watch the game you can basically calculate. wOBA takes into account all sorts of different offensive stats combined with a bunch of linear weights for each. It's not something you can just follow along the game and be like "Well his wOBA today is .400"
But research on baseball stats has been around much longer than Hockey and just the nature of the game (being individualistic and sort of turn based) allow it to fit better to stats.
