Points/game and points/IP


#1

I’d love to see points/game and points/IP at the end of lineup page instead of (or in addition to) just points.


#2

I am kind of surprised at the lack of a response to this suggestion, since it is probably the number one request I have gotten since the first day of launching Ottoneu. I know a lot of you use custom-built dashboards to manage your team, maybe that’s why?

Anyway, I am going to look at this sometime in the next couple of days and finally address this one.


#3

Oh right I totally forgot about this great Chrome extension by @varsityshortcut.

Probably a big reason why the requests for P/G and P/IP have decreased. I’m still going to address this in the next couple of days.

It would be great if that P/G calculation also worked when you filter v. L and v. R. For the Chrome extension, it doesn’t work because the game denominator seems to pull every game in which a batter faced a lefty or a righty. So, summing the v. L and v. R games gives more than the total games played. It should probably filter based upon the starting pitcher in that game. Not a perfect proxy for actual P/G v. L and v. R but better than you get currently. For example from the Chrome extension:

Cody Bellinger
All: 126 G, 897.1 P, 7.12 P/G
v. R 116 G, 628.2 P, 5.4 P/G
v. L 84 G, 268.9 P, 3.2 P/G

By splitting the data, it appears that Bellinger appeared in 200 games this season. I know that I can go look at the FanGraphs splits, but this would be nice for making quick lineup decisions.


#5

That is a great point. I messed up my local testing databases this morning so, slight delay, but I’ll make sure to check splits out before deploying!


#6

Yes, please get P/IP as a category. I usually do my own calculation of this a lot when making roster decisions, and it would be great to just have this stat there to see all the time.


#7

Why give the info to people who aren’t industrious enough to do the research themselves.


#8

Didn’t think about that with the L/R splits. Good catch. I guess I’d just replace it with P/AB unless you have a better idea. Or unless the G calculation gets redone, in which case I wouldn’t have to do anything.


#9

P/AB would absolutely provide the type of info that would be helpful in making roster decisions.


#10

P/AB makes more sense than P/G, yeah? P/AB seems more comparable to P/IP at least.

UPDATE: Wrote this, walked away, immediately reconsidered it. IP and G are the stats that are used for limits, so P/G may make more sense. There’s a different conversation to have about changing the limits from G -> AB but that can be had elsewhere.

P/G and P/IP have been added to the following pages (points leagues only):

  1. Roster Organizer
  2. Search Results
  3. Player Pages

Hope this is a useful addition for many of you!


#20

I would find it useful to include P/G and P/IP onto the watchlist page as well. Hope that isn’t too much too ask!
