  1. I don’t care what that says, I’m starting Hellickson over Hernandez.

  2. “NERD is the result of an attempt to represent numerically the likely aesthetic appeal of a pitcher, team, game, etc. to the baseball nerd (i.e. you, reading this).”

    Or not reading this.

  3. R.A. Dickey is more watchable than King Felix?

    Do the NERD scores have a fudge factor that artificially weights knuckleballers by 3 points?

  4. Yeah, the adjustment is knuckleball percentage times five — so about 4.1 for Dickey.

    He’d actually be doing pretty well without it, though. He has one of the highest strike percentages in the majors right now (68.1%, ca. 1.6 standard deviations above league average).

  5. Cistulli,

    Far be it for me to suggest that you could improve your style, however I would like to suggest an improvement to the style applied by the cascading sheets on this webpage.

    If you were to request that your code monkey add the ‘cursor: pointer;’ style to the “th”s on your table of scores, the reader would more easily discover its inherit sortability.

    Regards,
    A concerned nerd

  7. Texas has a Team Nerd of 10. Cool stuff. Not that NERD really means anything to anyone but the guy that created it. I mean, I’m not exactly trying to get on the waiting list to see the Royals play. Or the Astros/Bud Norris.

    …or Jason Hammel.

  12. Great, Carson. Now you need to find a way to continue to indicate the MLBTV Free Game of the Day on your chart. You know, for the starving student types! Today is NYN@HOU.
