A name that is very much of interest to me since he'll likely be flying waaaaaay toward the bottom of people's radars is Wandy Rodriguez. Good K-rate, solid GB rate (which I was unaware of) and solid control. If I'm not mistaken his greatest problem has been his home/road splits in the past (hmmmmm wasn't the Ervin Santana's biggest problem coming into this season... just saying :-b ). Nice work.


Muchas gracias.

Your kind words (and some additional suggestions from Rich at Baseball Analysts) have motivated me to make the sheet even better. See the updated version here: http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=pcwHMrO9Xyn-oW9HCl2ZwJA

K/9 and BB/9 have been replaced by K/BF and BB/BF. Rich did some number crunching, and found that the Z-Score weightings should be 5/2.5/1 for K/BB/GB. That's reflected in the sheet now, too.

Enjoy.

Nice work. It would really be interesting to see the previous 2 years for each pitcher or something. Might show some hidden gems.

DON'T USE IT YET!

I just spotted a couple errors (minor, but still errors) that I'll correct tonight.

Surprisingly Ubaldo pitches quite a bit better at home, a bit odd how much better.

Can you do the same thing for 06, 07? I asked before but didn't get a response. Thanks.
