  1. IMO, Scherzer is the most fun to watch. He gets a 15 nerd in my book. Looks at his eyes, man.

  2. Why on gods green earth is Yusimeiro Petit an eight when Chien-Ming Wang is merely a four?

  3. The NERD playoffs-odds adjustment should account for teams that have taken themselves out of the calculation. Ten teams have done this through poor play (Boston, Toronto, Minnesota, Cleveland, Seattle, New York-N, Miami, Chicago-N, Houston and Colorado) with Kansas City and San Diego soon to join. Two teams have done this by winning division titles (Cincinnati and San Francisco).

    Eighteen teams are now vying for 8 playoff spots, so the playoff adjustment should reward teams for being closest to 44.44%.

    Admittedly this method will miss the subtleties of the Yankees and Orioles situation, but it would be beneficial in that it would seem to provide a minor improvement, while needlessly adding complexity to the formula and work for the very handsome author of this column.

  4. If the Mariners beat the Rangers today, they will have won the season series 9-8. Unless they are demolished by at least sixteen runs, they will have out scored the Rangers on the season series.

  5. Pity the Marlins and Mets, who receive a game NERD of 0 despite the normalization.

  6. Well Chien-Ming Wang and his 6.07 FIP hasn’t been exactly amazing recently. Petit on the other hand gets a +8 bonus for being named Yusimeiro.

  7. A zero for the two teams seems pretty normal to me….

  8. That 21-to-whatever shellacking earlier in the season really messed with the run differential!
