WHIP - BR Bullpen
Happy 10th birthday to the SABR/Baseball-Reference Encyclopedia. Thanks to all those who have contributed and welcome to any who wish to contribute.
WHIP stands for walks plus hits, all divided by innings pitched. It is one of the standard measures of a pitcher's efficacy, noting how well they prevent baserunners. It became prominent in the 1980s and 1990s.
