Breitbart Sports introduces the Baseball Value Add database to allow baseball fans to search the rankings of each pitcher or individual game. Justin Masterson has two of the six 9-inning, 1-0 shutout performances this season (0.9 Value Add-Raw), while the ballpark adjustment gives even more credit to Jorge De La Rosa for making one run of net supporting holding up for a win IN COORS FIELD (Value Add after Adjustment).
In searching for the best supported and least supported pitchers by clicking “ERA Needed,” Stephen Strasburg has needed a 1.34 ERA to win on an average night, the second least support in baseball. Max Sherzer has needed a 7.08 ERA, the second best support in baseball.
However, in the more important game-by-game tab, Strasburg could have won with any ERA under 5.00 in six of his 19 games.
Stats are threw games of July 29, and will be updated at Breitbart Sports and then on the database this week along with other corrections, so comments back with corrections are welcome.
