I am a graduate of the University of Georgia where I majored in biology, and am currently enrolled as a dental student at the Medical College of Georgia. My interest in science, baseball, and math has culminated in an all around attempt to understand the statistical side of minor league player performances and what they mean for future production.
I also have 2 dogs and a 1990 Toyota Corolla that keep my life interesting outside of school. I like thai food, fishing, and giving injections.
I've been considering a numerical ranking system for pitchers on a 100 point scale, but I get really bored with numbers some times, and would rather have a more entertaining ranking system. So, for now on, when I write about a pitcher, I will rank him as either Dirt, Nasty, or Filthy depending on how good he is. Each ranking will be used in place of a number grade and the following chart explains what each term means numerically:
Term -- Score
Filthy -- 90-100 Nasty -- 80-89 Dirty -- 70-79
I'm still considering which terms to use for pitchers that score a 69 or below, so if you have any suggestions, feel free to let me know.
