It would be interesting to see how you determined the numbers. I can't think of any way that Scott's 1986 season would beat out Pedro's 1999 campaign.
Well, first, I'll say that they were very close. I think the reason for Scott edging Pedro is that Scott pitched 62 more innings with similar ratios. My formula awards points for ratios based on the ratios themselves quantified by the number of innings pitched.
Of course, small differences in the baseline numbers will result in a larger difference once the formula is calculated. I will readily admit that I am far too lazy to adjust for era, as well. I also know for a fact that I go about calculating player values somewhat differently than most people -- slightly kinkier, if you will. It is quite possible that it may be inherently flawed, as such.
