Mariners at Rangers Open Thread for Game of Baseball

Loading Scores

Took them long enough to get the line ups out!

So I added fielding and bullpen to the game-specific rankings below. The bullpen I'm fine with, it uses the actual bullpen performance over the past 6 weeks only, and adjusts for how much you'd expect them to be used given the endurance of today's starting pitcher. For fielding, I don't have an easy way to assign individual credit or even look only over a shorter time span, so I just use the season-long performance, pro-rated down to a single game.

Also, I added some stats for the starting pitchers below the graphs. Enjoy! Or don't. But if you don't, maybe offer a suggestion?
