I'll soon be adding a split that shows how pitchers do when their teams score 0-2, 3-5, or 6+ runs in a game.
Here is a little taste.
|Pitcher||0-2 runs||3-5 Runs||6+ runs|
|Jack Morris||143 G, 17-110 (.134), 6 SHO, 4.00 ERA||216 G, 98-66 (.598), 16 SHO, 3.56 ERA||190 G, 139-10 (.933), 6 SHO, 4.21 ERA|
|Bert Blyleven||232 G, 39-163 (.193), 22 SHO, 3.35 ERA||273 G, 119-81 (.595), 22 SHO, 3.27 ERA||187 G, 129-6 (.956), 16 SHO, 3.33 ERA|
This is almost the perfect example of Simpson's Paradox. Blyleven was (very nearly) had the better winning percentage in each category of run support, but has the worse overall winning percentage due to the weighting of the various categories.
Rich Lederer feel free to use this.
