I've just finished a starting pitcher log that shows the players overall rating and a projected won/loss record to compare with its actual won/loss record. Itíll list each games rating as well as an overall rating. (Higher rating is better. Rating is made up of basic, but important, pitching stats).
Itíll also project if the pitcher threw well enough to actually win the game or were they the benefit of great run support.
The projected won/loss record is a better indication, in my opinion, on how the pitcher is throwing. Their overall or actual won/loss record is influenced by their teams run support, bullpen and other factors. The metric Iíve created takes the majority of those factors out of the equation.
Hereís the link. (you'll see all 2012 pitchers that have started a game) Click a pitcher to get their stats and log.
Iíll continue to add past seasons so we can compare pitchers and eraís. I think itís a different way of looking at pitchers and will show how a pitcher may be better than their ďstatsĒ suggest or who may be worse.
Look at a couple of the 2012 Red Sox starters: Clay Buchholz and Daniel Bard. If it wasn't for their run support, my numbers suggest, they'd be 2-7 and 1-7 respectively instead of 5-2 and 4-6.
I thought some may be interested. I have all 2011 and 2012 starters listed for all teams. I also have NYY teams from 1960-2012, Arizona from 1998-2012 and the NY Mets from 1962-2012. I'll add more this week. Or if anybody has a particular team they'd like added I can do a block like I've done with the others. Years from 1960 to 2012.
