  • Statisticians needed! What do the stats tell us about foreign pitchers in MLB?

    I am trying to compare Cuban players stats against other foreign players.


    I am not an Statistician and never took a Statistics class in college. If any one has a background in Statistics, you are more than welcome to provide your input. For instance, how much a large number or small number may affect the results.


    For all others Baseball-Fever users, you can also give your opinion about what you think about my findings.

    If anyone have to rate the players from these countries with the current information I have provided, which country has done better. If the info provided is not enough, what other info is needed?

    Mean: add up all the values in a set of data and then divide that sum by the number of values in the dataset.

    Median: the value in the middle.

    Standard deviation: the standard deviation is kind of the "mean of the mean," and often can help you find the story behind the data. To understand this concept, it can help to learn about what statisticians call normal distribution of data.

    A normal distribution of data means that most of the examples in a set of data are close to the "average," while relatively few examples tend to one extreme or the other.

    A large SD tells you that the data are fairly diverse, while a small SD tells you the data are pretty tightly bunched together. If you'll be doing a lot of work with numbers or scientific research, it will be worth your time to learn a bit about the standard deviation.

    Since 1993 when the first Cuban baseball player, Rene Arocha, defected, these are the pitchers and their MLB stats for the following countries.

    You may want to check my calculations because I may have made mistakes.

      You should probably weight those averages by IP.

      a pitcher who posts a 13.50 ERA in 1 inning should not have the same pull on the average as a pitcher like Pedro who throws 2000 innings.

        Allright people! I calculated the different countries ERA. I missed a couple Dominican pitchers so I added them to the list. The lowest team ERAs are as follow:

            The Venezuelan pitchers aren't that great as a whole, but they are certainly aided by the weighting of Zambrano and Santana.

            In the same spirit, the Dominican's couldn't pull it out, even with Pedro's 2500+ innings of 2.72 ERA pitching.

            I think it may be reasonable to put a floor on innings needed to qualify. Maybe a pitcher should have to pitch 100 innings or so. There are a lot of guys on these lists who are really just "failed experiments."
