In an idea cribbed from Royals Review, I'm charting the Indians pitchers by game scores. Game score is a simple metric developed by Bill James that defines a quality start as above 50. A perfect game score would be a 114. The link will tell you much more if you so desire. In the charts below, you will see along the horizontal x-axis the start number for each pitcher (note that each graph starts with the pitcher's first start, not the beginning of the season) and along the vertical y-axis the game score. All of the game score data was collected from baseball-reference.
I've done the chart for each pitcher and then, at the end, added two relatively obvious comparisons. Seeing the charts this way allows us to see if a pitcher got less or more effective over the course of the season or in any particular stretch. For another reference on pitcher effectiveness, I'm going to include average season game score here:
I suspect others will have greater insight than I, but, for starters, it stands out that only two pitchers that have averaged a QS will finish with Cleveland and one of them carries a small sample size caveat. I have no idea what the average is for all teams (or good teams) but this seems like a bad thing. On to the charts:
Note: The "65" above denotes Jake last's game in Cleveland, where his GS was 65.
