Your NL predictions list Jose Fernandez as a reliever….. is that supposed to mean he is a 14 starter?

Hey Bruce – you might want to check the grade for Joe Smith. You gave him a 16 which looks like you based it only on his stats with the Cubs. He also pitched for the Angels and his combined ERA is 3.46.

Great job as always and much appreciated.

wont kershaw get a zz?

Probably, haven’t gotten that far yet. I was going to do that soon. These need fine tuning.

how do your numeral #s convert to basic game letters ?

Luke Weaver?

I will get to Luke Weaver and his 5.70 ERA soon

Was curious why you think Belisle gets a zz while Andrew Miller with a lower walk rate would not?

I mainly ask because my team has Belisle and would LOVE that zz.

Walk rating in APBA are based on walks/per total batters faced and Belisle gave up 3 IBBs lower his rate. APBA eliminates IBB from the equation.

Also, the difference between the NL and AL walk rate. The NL had a higher walk rate than the AL so Belisle’s walk rate was lower against the league average than Millers.
