I lack the sabermetric math skills that some users on this site possess.
Here's my puzzle: My pitchers in one progressive league are suffering far higher OAV inflation than other owners' pitchers. I can't tell if it's just bad luck.
The 10 league leaders' inflation in OAV from their OAV# to their league actual ranges from +32 to +49, whereas my starting pitchers are +75, +75 and +90.
My team plays in Busch I at 1b 0 and HR -2. The category leaders' home fields are Petco (4), Astro (1), Colt (2), Oriole, Oakland and Yankee I.
Do the fields that are rated with minus values for hits (1b) make up the kind of difference I'm experiencing?
BTW, last season I homed this team at Busch II, where one would expect better pitching results, but the team record was awful. The team is doing better, if not well, in Busch I.
