Pitcher Stat Sheets from Scarce Ideas for WS Game 6 pleasure

These two links below will take you to pdf’s containing compact pitching data.  The data could be useful for tonight’s game with the Giants and Royals.  This info courtesy of Richard Fabbri of Scarce Ideas, LLC.

  1. Thought you might like to see something that makes some sense out of this weird World Series now in progress!

    That is, since the inception of Wild Cards (’95), this is the 2nd time both Series teams had drawn Wild Cards…
    … Then, the Giants and Royals had to beat 6 teams… who each had better season records!

    If you’re following this Series, please enjoy these 2 (pdf) docs!
    An advanced (Self-Organizing) tech just analyzed how the Giants & Royals pitchers compare to one another.
    The Groups of Similar Pitchers… shown on these 2 pdf’s… can help you play an informed guessing game:
    … Which Pitchers will the Teams choose to relieve their starting Pitchers?

    As you’ll see, all Pitchers belong to a particular Group, whose other members performed in a similar way this 2014 season.

    An interesting observation:
    The yellow box (on the 1-of-2 pdf) shows that the best Groups (A, B, C) actually contain the 2014 Starting Pitchers.
    Note: Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit is Ranked 12th (of 21 pitchers), yet showed-up in our BEST (Group-A)!
    Petit was put-in, after disastrous inning-3 (Game-4), and won Game-4 for the Giants, evening the field at 2 Wins all.

    Let me know, via email, or the Scarce Ideas website, if you have any questions/comments about this new Pitcher analysis.

    Best Regards,

  2. Using pdf sheet 1 of 2, let’s see how the Royals lost Game-7…

    They basically lost game-7 in the 4th inning when they relieved Guthrie w/Herrera after Sandoval went to 3rd… (costing them the 3rd Giants run in the 4th when Morse RBI’d Sandoval). Instead, the Royals had a much better chance by going to Davis who had allowed fewer H’s, R’s and scored more SO’s than Herrera… they finally went to Davis anyway in the 7th! But, the Giants put-in Bumgarner in the 5th to seal-off any further Royals runs.

    The key here is to look at sheet 1 and note that Affeldt (who relieved Hudson in the 2nd), Davis and Herrera are all in Group-D, but Davis was the Royals better choice and might have stopped Morse / Sandoval from getting that 3rd Giants Run in the 4th.

    The Royals also put in Holland (their Closer in the 9th, also from Group-D, to halt more Giants Runs, which he did by a groundout and 2 swinging strikeouts), but Bumgarner was to be the end of any Royals hope… of getting Gordon to score from 3rd… to at least tie things-up in the bottom of the 9th.

    So, the Giants won game-7 using their Group-A Bumgarner, and the Royals lost Game-7 by not choosing their best options from Group-D.

    A final point, this Self-Organizing technology can reveal the Pitching Groups of any 2 Teams scheduled to play any game and help team management make decisions about Starting Pitchers and Relief Pitchers.
