2013 Rankings and Projections: SP


"Don't look at me! You're a dirty, stinking hippy. And you can't throw a strike!"

The Million Dollar Projections are back! This year I decided to honor all those goombas who talk trash at someone, but aptly describe themselves when doing so. If you haven't been the victim of projection, Tim Lincecum is looking at you kid. If your twig-like, hippy legs can manage, make the jump for MDS' Top 60 Starting Pitchers.

 

The Pitchers are broken into groups of twelve.

I manufactured these statistics using projections for Total Batters Faced, K/9, BB/9, Fly Ball Percentage, HR/FB% and BABIP. I used the FIP formula for ERA but included Earned Runs gained or lost via above or below average BABIP. If you'd like to talk about numbers, you know what to do. And no, I do not care about Tim Lincecum's new haircut, you less manly version of Wendy Williams.
