Like the stat so far, def seeing plenty of good value correction here.
Trying to understand some things with the weighting for a few value instances as innings increase. I'll start with 2013 rankings; though there were no players I would consider individual category killers, I'm going to label these guys category killers just to describe this situation.
Cole Hamels 8 wins, 220IP, .33 w/9, -2.82 z-score (the worse in player universe based on "all players" player filter)
Jason Grilli 0 wins 50IP, 0 w/9, -1.35 z-score
Confused why Jason Grilli's z-score isn't much worse/why Cole Hamels was more than 2x worse than Grilli.
For the rest of the instances I'll use the 2014 projections for each case:
Strasburg is the #1 SP for this stat with a .71 (15 wins, 193.4IP) and is tied for 3rd overall.
Paco Rodriguez of the Dodgers is a few ticks below Strasburg in the overall rankings with 1.00 (4 wins, 40.1IP).
my GUESS is that this has something to do with hitting a "SP" innings plateau in which it becomes extremely hard to sustain a .71 w/9 based on the rest of the projections for the player universe.
Michael Wacha is projected 14 wins in 185.5 IP with a .67 w/9 , z-score is positive 1.20
Mike Minor is projected 14 wins in 188.5 IP with a .65 w/9, z-score is positive .65
3 innings saved/ .02 hundreths are worth almost double the value? seems almost negligible in case like that one.
