More inner-workings of DRA 2016.

A few weeks ago, BP author Rob Mains inquired about what he saw as a possible bias in Deserved Run Average (DRA) values in favor of fly-ball pitchers, and against groundball pitchers. Specifically, he observed that ground-ball pitchers were doing worse in DRA, on average, than they were in Runs Allowed per 9 innings (RA9).

When it comes to the standings on the first day of the second half, what you see is *mostly* what you get.

Last year, the Cardinals had the best record in baseball, 100-62. The Pirates were second best, 98-64. This year, at the All-Star break, the teams find themselves looking up—looking pretty far up, in fact; 7.0 games for St. Louis and 7.5 for Pittsburgh—at the Cubs. Worse, they’re currently fourth and fifth, respectively, in the race for the two National League Wild Card slots, 1.0 and 1.5 games, respectively, behind the Mets and Marlins for the last spot. It’s leading fans of the two teams to ask, Are the Cubs really this good? and Are we really this bad? Cubs fans, by contrast, are looking at a team that was a ridiculous 39-15 record after play on June 10 but 14-20—third worst in the National League, tied for seventh worst in the majors—ever since.[1]
