Collapsing Middle Rotation

While working on the 2015 runs prevented rankings for the National League, I noticed a strange set of trends: The NL featured the lowest number of “full-time” starters since 2009 (only 67 regular starters worked 100+ innings). Only 11 starters prevented between 4 and -4… [More]
