2007 LIPS ERA & DIPS WHIP leaders

I’ve gotten several requests to see an updated list of the LIPS ERA and DIPS WHIP leaders, so here you go.

I’ve made a few changes to the table format. First, you’ll notice that the text is smaller. It feels like I’m trying to squeeze too much information into these tables, but most of it seems kind of necessary, or at least interesting to have. I’d be curious to know what you guys think.

I’ve added some defensive stats on here. They appear in the four columns furthest to the right. The first of these columns gives THT’s Plus/Minus grade for that pitcher’s team. The second column gives his team’s Plus/Minus rank among his team’s league (AL or NL). The third column gives THT’s Revised Zone Rating (RZR) for his team, and the fourth is the team’s league rank.

I think you should be familiar with the other columns, so let’s look at the tables.

Concluding thoughts

I’m not going to review any particular players because we’ll be doing a ton of that over the next couple of months, but with all of the requests for these lists I wanted to give them to you. I’ll be back either later tonight or tomorrow with a player profile.

I’ve gotten a few more requests for player profiles, so if you have anyone you’d like to see feel free to send me an email.
