Pitcher Fun With Home/Road Splits
Yesterday, I shared a quick spreadsheet breaking down my position players by home/road and left/right splits. Today, I’m taking a look at my staff using home/road splits through the lens of FIP and K/BB.
When assessing pitchers, I prefer to minimize risk than take big chances. This is why Ryan Dempster was so attractive to me at auction. With Dempster, I know exactly what I’m getting. For me, the best way to minimize risk is to use FIP and K/BB. Maybe there are better ways to do this using advanced statistics, but I’m most comfortable using these.
Once again, I’m using career numbers which skew things a bit, but this is obviously not law. However, it’s good to know just how bad Ivan Nova has been at home and to never pitch him there under any circumstance. Also, I’m surprised at just how strong Lance Lynn is across the board. At a time when I believed he’d regress, I now believe he’s quite the pitching asset.
Happy opening day all! And if you celebrate Easter, then happy Easter too! Time for me to get back to the family and enjoy the holiday.
