Today's Best Fantasy Pitcher Starts


This is iteration (or version) one of an algorithm I am developing to list the best pitchers to start on a given day in a standard fantasy baseball league. This algorithm will progressively get better and list more important information. What you are looking at is the first iteration of this process. The list currently takes into consideration the chances for the team to win and how many runs the pitcher is likely to give up. Not perfect, but a good start.

Early Season Look At Offense

.
A quick look reveals that offense is down once again this season. Though it is still early and we are in April and we could be seeing an effect from cold early spring temperatures. Either way this is what the data looks like so far. I will check back on this a little later in the season to see what the trend looks like.

Exportable 2015 MLB Schedule


Something that is difficult to find on the internet is an excel download file of the 2015 MLB Schedule.  I have taken the time to write a script that takes the 2015 MLB Schedule and converts it to an easy to use CSV file and uploaded it to google docs.  The file is free to download and can be found at the following link.

Here is the format that the file is in

Game ID,Year,Month,Day,Time,Away,Home
