Morrison/Pavlidis/Long: Pitching scores: power, command, and stamina

From Kate Morrison, Harry Pavlidis, and Jeff Long at Baseball Prospectus on January 30, 2018:

While there is no shortage of metrics that purport to describe how “good” or “bad” a pitcher really is, there has been less focus on metrics that describe how a pitcher gets to their results. This, then, is the goal of the metrics introduced here: To provide as comprehensive a picture of a pitcher as possible, to be used as quantitative illustrations with their results.

We are happy to introduce three new “top line” pitching metrics. These metrics are rated on a scale of 0-100 across all seasons in the sample, so the top Power Score season of all time would be 100, while the lowest Power Score of all time would be 0. These stats can be found on our new Advanced Rates stat report.
