Pitcher eligibility

Postby SaintsOfTheDiamond » Mon Nov 29, 2004 12:07 am

How do you determine whether a pitcher qualifies as a SP, RP, or both? I'm trying to do pitcher projections and -- I may be wrong -- but wouldn't figuring "total" cats like K, H, BB, etc be skewed if you calculate with RP and SP together? :-? Is it determined by IP? BTW it's for Yahoo leagues if that makes a difference.

If you use Yahoo's eligibilty requirements it is:

"Pitchers need to make three starts to become eligible as a starter and five relief appearances to qualify as a reliever."

So for SP just using players with more than ~3 starts should be OK for SP data? :-? My spreadsheet doesn't have relief appearances. :-/ So would taking players with more than ~40 appearances be good enough for RP data? :-? Or am I making all of this way too complicated? :-°

Games pitched minus games started will give you the number of relief appearances. ;-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
