Long story short: someone forwarded me an email from Josh about this new pitching stat. Gimme the low down on this.
I can help get the word out if you want. I’ve gotten a little over 1000 hits on my site in the last five days, a decent amount of traffic, though I’ve only been consistently writing about for it for a few weeks now.
Do you have anyway of measuring how the great Negro League pitchers like “Satchel” Paige and Bill Foster compare to great HOF Major League pitchers?

We haven’t done anything yet with the Negro Leagues. This spring, we may run the numbers from those leagues, but making comparisons between leagues will still be difficult. Thanks for reading our stuff!
