April Starter RATBOPs and BPAs.

I'm lazy. I want something like a pitcher's OPS that can save me all the cross referencing between FIP and BABIP and FPK% and FB/GB% and QS and everything else. Probably somebody's already got something, but I haven't quite found it. Anyway, here's RATBOP, which is Running Around the Bases + Outs Percentage. Each batter can go a maximum of four bases; how many did they actually travel? How deep into the game does the starter go? A perfect game has a RATBOP of 2000 (as does a game in which 9 baserunners are wiped out in DPs; I believe in redemption); 1000 of it on the outs recorded side and 1000 on the bases travelled side. BPAs are total bases travelled per plate appearance. So here are the RATBOP/BPAs for April:

TALBOT       1595     0.545
FAUSTO      1567     0.696
HUFF          1548      0.732
JAKE           1379     0.943
JMAST        1260     1.074

Best game RATBOPs were Talbot's 1925 and Huff's 1903 CGs. Worst was Masterson's 4th start, 1053.
