That sounds quite likely correct, however. I'd expect that at some point you'd hit a wall in the rankings. All the guys who haven't pitched at all naturally should be clustered together, as they have identical stats. Guys below that point are guys that effectively would have done you more harm than good to have used. In the case of pitchers, the benefit of their wins/saves/K's would have been more than counteracted by the harm done by their ERA and WHIP.

Take it to an extreme. If a guy has 0 wins, 0 K's, and 0 saves, and has an ERA of 38.84 and a WHIP of 4.14 in many innings pitched, surely he's worth less than the guys who haven't pitched. Right? The rankings are now showing you where we believe that "Mendoza line" to be.

yup, there are a lot of players that have negative value because they only hurt you. they should be ranked below people that have done nothing.
