1. Which Pitcher is on a better team? More likely to get wins or saves.
2. What league is the pitcher in? Favor NL over AL (except Colorado)
also, being on a better team doesnt necessarily mean you get more save opps (bad teams usually win by small margins) - teams like arizona are obviously exceptions...i'd like to see stats on that actually - the correlation between team winning percentage and save opps...
and as far as NL vs AL, i dont see the difference either - i can understand favoring an NL starter because of the pitcher having to bat, but aint no pitcher gonna bat in the 9th when its a save situation
