Hyperlink

FanGraphs lists their top 10 pitchers and bottom 10 rated by NERD which is

(zxFIP * 2) + (zSwStrk / 2) + (zStrk / 2) + zVelo + zAge + Luck + (KN * 5) + Constant

Current constant is at 4

Samardzija is 4th while Feldman is dead last. I found it funny (in a sadist sort of way) to have the opposite ends of the spectrum.

 

Cubs as a team came in a 5th to last. The formula changes a bit for that.

zBAT + zHR% + zBsR + (zBULL / 2) + (zUZR / 2) + zPAY + zAGE + (LUCK / 2) + Constant

Current constant is at 4.25

 

No real questions or anything. Just found this interesting.

It is HILARIOUS that the Dodgers are 2nd to last and sad that the Phillies are a step behind us, considering the rotation they had a couple years ago.

It does warm the cockles of my heart to see the White Sox below us too.

You just wanted to say cockles.

 

Although, I was grossly dissapointed by the name of this stat.

1. You just wanted to say cockles.

 

2. Although, I was grossly dissapointed by the name of this stat.

 

1. Guilty

 

2. Why so? The negative connotation? Or, was it not nerdy enough?

I was hoping for something a long the lings of sCRAP+ or BELLYf+.  Although, if this stat actually tells us something useful,  then HOORAY!
