How do you rank pitchers?

Postby Bloody Nipples » Wed Jan 05, 2005 5:06 pm

I am about to rank all my pitchers (both relievers and starters), and I'm wondering how I should value reliever's counting stats. I will be playing mostly roto leagues with IP caps this year, so I would think a K/IP analysis would be the best way to go, but is it?

Also, do you project wins and saves for your rankings? If not, then how do you account for the obvious extra value closers bring with their saves?

Any input on these topics would be great!

Thanks,
BN

I've spilt them up and ranked them seperately. I take the league requirements that make a pitcher as a SP or RP then rank them seperately. Depending on your league I think that Yahoo usues something like three starts qualifies a guy for SP and five relief apperances qualifies him as a RP, or something like that.

i rank seperately.

i don't pay attention to relievers until about round 10, so i never worry about how high to rank Gagne and Lidge on my rankings... I just won't get 'em!

Last year i ended up with Benitez and Kolb after the 10th round. Not bad eh

I rank SP, MR, and CL separately. In CL I include anyone who has closed within the past 3 years (aside from happenstance opportunities) and those who may end up closing this year. The only MR stats that will matter for me are ERA, WHIP and K. Then I look for a track record of decent #s. Gotta be careful though. I remember a Gammons article last year about the notorious inconsistency of most RP non-closers who had one great year followed by one awful year and vice versa.
