Yeah, I think Perlick's rankings were inspired by the one that I'm talking about... the one I was thinking of was at least a couple years ago, maybe more.
I don't know how much more work it is really... there's on-average 30 SPs per day. At least 12 of these are going to be #1/#2 pitchers who are going to be started by just about everybody, and will have an A/B rating 90% of the time (unless they run up against a really tough team).
Picking out the bottom-third guys who have good matchups (or are on a hot streak) is the tough part of the work anyway, which was what Perlick was already doing. Adding a dozen guys who everybody is going to own (and is just about guaranteed to start) doesn't really add too much extra effort... at least in the way I was anticipating doing it.
I guess I'm really just hesitant to start doing this based off of my own "gut" feeling, sticking my neck out there as an "expert" and not creating anything of value. There's a big difference between doing some sort of logical analysis of the probables than there is just going through and picking out which ones you think
will have a good start... I don't think that really adds anymore value than any other "matchup ratings" you get from your league sites.
