oOBP Introduced for Pitchers


oOBP Introduced for Pitchers

Anyone notice the new Opponent OBP stat available for all pitchers ? Sweet. :)

Re: oOBP Introduced for Pitchers

wer already have whip,whats the point pretty much the same thing

Re: Re: oOBP Introduced for Pitchers

WHIP is measuring (Walks + Hits, HBP not included) per Inning Pitched.

Opponent OBP is encompassing all the possible events of a plate appearance (H, BB, HB, SAC or SF, Error) per plate appearance (Batter Faced).

Re: oOBP Introduced for Pitchers

Wild Pitches are "hidden" kicks-in-the-sack for some pitchers. The oOBP is a nice add; I find it very useful in comparing pitchers' actual performance on my teams.

Re: Re: oOBP Introduced for Pitchers

Not every WP results in a runner reaching base, so oOBP doesn't really help grasp the effects of WPs... nevertheless, I find oOBP more useful than WHIP in comparing how pitchers are actually simming.
