Another "Hey, This Might be a Cool Stat" Post.


YoDaddyWags recently put up a post detailing a pitching stat he "developed."  Well, this was enough to get me to post my idea for what I feel would be a really cool offensive stat.  I've been keeping it to myself because, hopefully, my brain reasoned, I could have some time one day to figure out if this really is useful.  Then, PROFIT!

 

Well, maybe I need some input at some point anyways, so here it goes:

 

For the lack of a nice name like RATBOP (that's really as fine an example as you'll find, right there), it's called "average runs scored in inning where hitter bats (period)"

 

I hinted at this once before, apparently upon hearing that OH NOEZ GARK IS GAWN ... so... does it already exist?

 

Did your first hitter in the inning have a 13-pitch AB that weakened the pitcher or forced a lesser pitcher into the game?  Bam.  He gets credit here, provided the batters after him take advantage.

 

Thoughts?
