Analyze this pitcher's stats....

Postby RynMan » Wed May 11, 2005 2:42 am

Im think i'm gettin my head around the DIPS thing. My calculations put his DIPS ERA at around 3.60. So if you look at the pitcher below's stats (although a small smaple size) is it fair to assume that he was unlucky as his hit rate was rather high? And is it more accurate to rate his performance based in K's, BB's and HR's?

W 0
L 0
ERA 7.27
G 10
GS 1
GF 4
IP 17.1
H 31
R 18
ER 14
BB 5
SO 16
HBP 0
WP 2
BK 2

as far as I can tell, he throws a lot of belt-high strikes and has a questionable defense behind him. not someone i would pick up just yet. who is it?

Not telling :-D
Wanted to get some analysis first. Does anyone think that the ERA is unusually high considering the indicators?

Yeah, the ERA is definitely high when considering the peripheral numbers. The defense behind him and just plain bad luck is probably to blame. I would expect the ERA to come down if he keeps putting up the same numbers.

The ERA is pretty high considering the background numbers but in such a small sample it is almost impossible to put much analysis into it. Schilling has put up very similar numbers to those (in some regards even better) and has a worse ERA to show for it.

Is it Darrell May? He's the closest thing I can find to those stats.
