Pirate SP Results YTD and Comparisons


So here is a summary of the SP results using the HQS/QS/Avg/Poor/Blowup rating system.

Some conclusions:

1) The SP got even better in May. In fact the SP have gone 12 straight starts that were HQS or QS. Last year the most was 6 in a row (6/27 to 7/2).

2) Of the present SP, only McDonald has a  HQS/QS/AVG % less than League Average of ~74% Last year only Ohlendorf was league average-everyone else was below average.

3) The Buc SP is now better than the Reds were last year.

4) Maholm is pitching like an Allstar. He is pitching as well as Drabek did back in 92. In fact, he is pitching better than any of the top 45 pitchers of last year. Josh Johnson was tops last year with a HQS/QS/Avg=89%
