This should be the last one. Is there a function or formula to find the square root of a number with Excel?

Thanks

Okay, any fantasy analysis where you're using square roots is waaaaay too much analysis.

Was looking at some sabr pages and they were discussing RAA is proven to be the most valuable way to find a pitcher's winning percentage. So I took a little time to figure it out. Best I've seen is a 55% which seems low, but anywho.
