If it makes them follow baseball more than I will be glad.
I don't want to make it too hard though.
What about the other stats though?
K/9, K/B, and walks?
which one should I use?
I would dump things like CGs, IP, and L
You are already counting BB and K. In fact, you are counting BB twice. Why do you want to add more categories?
I think there are two things to consider.
1. What things do you think really measure good pitching?
2. Would you rather use counting stats or rate stats or a mix? (one big issue here is that counting stats give starters more value, while rate stats generally give relievers more value.
I would say that if you really think certain things are such an important part of pitching, then you would want it covered in two or more categories. I think the research clearly shows that the things that pitchers have the most control over are K, BB, and HR. Since you already have BB covered in two categories, you might argue for adding HR and K/9 rather than K/bb.
So, I would go with W, SV, HLD, ERA, WHIP, K, BB, K/9, HR if you want to have a lot of categories and want to "double count" BB and K. I guess this also balances the value of starters and relievers.
