Are you OK with your ERA weighting system?

The ERA weighting seems off to me. I have a pitcher, with 5 IP, with an ERA of 1.80 and an ERA weighting of -0.97.  So it pushes my pitcher to a very low ranking, when in reality it was a very good start for me. 

Is it perhaps because many pitchers still have an ERA of 0? If so, and you agree that it is giving off false ratings, is there a solution by not including pitchers below a certain innings threshold?

Yes, if pitchers have pitched any innings, they are included in the results, and there likely are lots of 0.00 ERA pitchers.

This shouldn't be an issue too much longer, but I'll give this some thought since it's currently misleading.

Thank you. My league has an average ERA ~ 3.50, so a pitcher who had 1 start and gave up 1 run in 5 innings should have an ERA category weighting that is clearly positive.

I'm not sure what the answer is, but this is the time of year when I rely on player rankings to fill early holes, and I realized the pitcher rankings in my league make no sense.

I believe the solution is to add a "Calculate Using Owned" option like the basketball site has.  This way, it's only using the players on actual rosters when comparing rather than the whole player pool.

Your FD salary for Jon Gray is WRONG. Should be 8000 not 7800

Looks like the All Day and Main prices were different so we've switched a few players to Main.  We need to create separate versions which we'll do shortly.

Calculate based on owned would be a great addition
