Wade LeBlanc 2020

Ok, better than I expected. His line doesn’t reflect how well he pitched.

Very Moyeresque.    I though he had a great game.   Too bad his bequeathed runners both scored, but luckily he got enough offensive support to get credited with the W.    I’m sure he’ll take it!

I'm not a fan of the inherited runners going to the previous pitcher, but I can't think of a better way to do it. Maybe limit it to only runners left at 3rd base.

The solution is to pay more attention to other stats than ERA.   WHIP, OPSagainst, or even fun stuff like FIP variants.

But if really wanted to improve ERA, you could compute the likelihood of runs scoring and only charge the pitcher for that (i.e. let's say a runner on 3rd with one out scores 52.7% of the time, a number I just made up, but I'm sure you could find the real #.   If a pitcher leaves the game with a runner on 3rd and 1 out he is ALWAYS charged with 0.527 runs.   If the reliever lets the run score he is charged with 0.473 runs, and if he doesn't he is charged with -0.527 runs.   It will add up the same, but the responsibility for the runs will be shared.   It will be possible for really really good relievers to have a negative ERA if they come in and strand runners.

Kinda sounds like WPA.

Yes, now that you mention it.

But WPA really doesn't apply to starters, and it takes leverage into account.   We are just trying to accurately measure how LeBlanc pitched today, how much responsibility he should bear for those last two runs that scored.   We don't want a metric that would return drastically different results if the Orioles had scored 10 runs when he left in the 6th as opposed to whether they had scored 0.

Or use all of them together and understand their limitations

Well, this was about what I expected when they signed him. Not nearly as sharp with command tonight, which he has to have or this is the likely outcome.

Leblanc should never come out to start the 4th.  He just didn't  have it tonight.  Hyde's responsibility to take him out.

    • With two games to play, the Orioles could still end up picking anywhere from 3rd to 10th. To pick 3rd they would have to lose their final two games while Boston and Detroit win their final two games and Washington wins one of their final three games. We currently have the sixth pick as we jumped Arizona yesterday to move up from seventh. If we were to win our final two games we could drop to 10th with one win by Arizona and two wins by Kansas City, Colorado, and Seattle.

    • This is the Orioles' fourth losing season in a row. Someone who's been a fan for 50 years undoubtedly remembers that the team went 14 seasons in a row with losing records from 1998 through 2011. Then the next year they made the playoffs and won their first round game and all of a sudden it was a lot of fun again. The good times will come again.  Can't guarantee it'll be next year, but they will come.
