75 for 75 Pitchers
« on: January 07, 2019, 06:48:38 AM »
Unfortunately, life has gotten busier for me so I haven't been able to close out this series.  I keep hoping to have a bit of extra time, but I don't see a break coming.  Now it's been a couple of sim seasons beyond season #75 and the results are less and less fresh as we move forward. 

I've had the player rankings done, but I haven't been able to do the little analysis write-up piece.  At this point I'm just going to post what I do have though.

1) James Yim * 2003 - 2021
In addition to being the top starting pitcher, Yim also has, in my opinion, the best single season ever recorded by a starting pitcher in NPBL history.  The candidates are:

The thing that makes Yim’s 2007 season so outstanding is not the fact that he is the best-of-all-time in any one category, but rather the fact that he is near to the top in many categories. 
Most wins in a season
31 – Carlos Gallegos 2064
30 – James Yim 2007
30 – Kevin Smith 2029
Most strikeouts in a season
445 – Steven Williams 2003
428 – Steven Williams 2005
375 – James Yim 2007
375 – Steven Williams 2008
Lowest ERA in a season (min 200 IP)
1.05 - Edgardo Castillo 2004
1.20 - Andy Dwyer 2062
1.24 – James Yim 2007
Lowest WHIP in a season (min 200 IP)
0.62 – James Yim 2011
0.64 – James Yim 2008
0.66 – David Echegaray 2015
0.67 – Chad Schmidt 2022
0.68 – James Yim 2007
0.68 – David Echedgaray 2014

2) Andy Dwyer 2057 - 2075
Hypothesis: There were more great pitchers in NPBL’s early days as opposed to “modern times”.  If this hypothesis is true, then Andy Dwyer represents a bit of an anomaly as a modern day pitcher with the talent of an early-day pitcher.  In order to test this hypothesis, I’ve compiled the number of seasons from the top 75 pitchers and grouped them by decade:

Note that the decades on either end of the spectrum are hampered.  For instance, it’s possible to have an outstanding pitcher from 2000 that did not make the top 75 list due to the fact that he was already an advanced age when the league began.  Likewise, a rookie in 2075 is unlikely to make the top 75 list even if it is evident he will be on the list once he accumulates years of statistics.  Also, the 2070s are even further hampered by the fact that only 6 years are recorded as opposed to the full 10 years from the other decades. 
Nonetheless, I think it’s fair to say that the hypothesis does not hold true.  The number of top 75 pitchers’ seasons hold a near bell-curve with the 2030s being the top of the curve.  However, if we were to modify the hypothesis to say that there were more superb pitchers in NPBL’s early days, then I would measure this hypothesis using the top 10 pitcher seasons

In this case, it’s very possible to conclude that the early-day pitchers are more plentiful, with half of the top 10 made up of pitchers from the 00’s and 10’s (Yim, Echegaray, E Castillo, Turner, & Lamela), and Dwyer being the only contributor to the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.  If you think the explanation for this lies within the created superstars, you’d be incorrect as Ryan Turner is the only created superstar pitcher in the top 10.
This is interesting to compare/contrast with the ebbs and flows of NPBL run production.  All leagues go through some periods that are more offensively heavy or predominately defensive and the NPBL is no exception.  The graphs below show that the early decades of the NPBL were indeed pitching-heavy before an offensive spike in the 2030s.  Since around 2035, there has been a slow and steady decline of offensive production to the point where the league is almost as run-scarce as its ever been.



3) Todd Castillo * 2028 - 2041
In 2040, the Idaho Spuds had two top 10 pitchers on its pitching staff: Todd Castillo and Wayne Beaman.  It was one of only 4 years where 2 top 10 pitchers played the whole year for the same team. 


4) David Echegaray * 2003 - 2026

5) Edgardo Castillo * 2001 - 2018

6) Kevin Smith 2019 - 2036

7) Ryan Turner * 2001 - 2016

8 ) Ed Hansen * 2031 - 2048

9) Wayne Beaman * 2030 - 2048

10) Ben Lamela * 2008 - 2025

As I wrote elsewhere, it's tougher to make the top 75 as a starting pitcher than any other position.  The equivalent of being #75 in any other position is being #300 as a SP.  Therefore, I'll also show the list of the rankings from 76 to 300 for SP.
