Posted by The Taint on 9/20/2013 9:12:00 PM (view original):There's absolutely a correlation between pitchers who get a lot of wins and good pitchers, but the stat is horrible.
As of 2008 29 of 803 20 game winners had era+ of less than 100. 13 of those 29 were 99 or 98. It's hard to win 20 without being a very good pitcher. Wins are not as overrated as some would lead you to believe.
Then you want to take this horrible, imprecise stat and use it to evaluate two pitchers when the win difference between them works out to be 2 or 3 pitcher wins a season.
did some fairy-tale characters leave u a trail of oreo crumbs, to guide and lead u along this shortcut, to this discovery?
no matter what they tell u, u are still very, very lost. a world of horrifying stats that make sportswriters look dumb. your claim to horrifying fame as a discoverer is firmly denied. u have thirty days to file an appeal.
u can't use cy young in your appeal though. your dumb, imprecise analysis of baseball stats, has u declaring that 2 andy pettites are worth more than one cy young, from the old black and white photo days. am sure u also have a better name for that annual award, than hls name.
quit. not a four-letter word. a notion that will save your horrifying butt. store your brains elsewhere.
