About Jon
Thank You For Not ...

1) using profanity or any euphemisms for profanity
2) personally attacking other commenters
3) baiting other commenters
4) arguing for the sake of arguing
5) discussing politics
6) using hyperbole when something less will suffice
7) using sarcasm in a way that can be misinterpreted negatively
8) making the same point over and over again
9) typing "no-hitter" or "perfect game" to describe either in progress
10) being annoyed by the existence of this list
11) commenting under the obvious influence
12) claiming your opinion isn't allowed when it's just being disagreed with

Thanks for sorting that by team by ERA+.

The table gives a good handle on what each team has got.

I still find it hard to believe the Braves gave up the farm and did nothing to solve the backend of the pitching.

The Twins had the pitching and did nothing to bolster the offense. If ever a team was a match for Betemit it was the Twins.

Loaiza has a ERA+ of 236

is there an ERA+-like statistic that takes innings pitched into consideration?

Barry Zito: 5th Starter. And if you ignore innings pitched and ballpark factors it looks like D.C. has the best rotation.

3 yeah, i thought about VORP, but it isn't normalized. i guess it's hard to balance counting and rate stats and come up with a notion of an "average" performance.
