Matt, could you get this added under Pitcher Team Year as well? That 'team' isn't a statistical option on Pitcher Season is quite frustrating; there's no real way to just look at the SIERA of one particular staff or another without wading through by IP counts and such.
Wait, neither Carpenter or Wainwright in the top-10? Beware of Cardinals fans carrying pitchforks, tar, feathers, and a battered-and-bleeding Keith Law effigy!
Hahaha-- 11th and 12th for Carpenter and Wainwright, respectively, actually. I considered making it a Top 12 to show where they were, but I was afraid that I was letting the pitchforkists win if I did that! :)
