SOME FRIENDS OF MINE WITH BIG COMPUTER BACKGROUNDS AND MINIMAL HANDICAPPING SKILLS HAVE ASKED ME WHAT THE FIVE BIGGEST HANDICAPPING FACTORS ARE IN HANDICAPPING BASEBALL.

THEY ASKED ME TO LIST THE FIVE IN ORDER OF IMPORTANCE AND ASKED ME TO ASSIGN A % VALUE AS TO HOW IMPORTANT % WISE EACH FACTOR IS TO THE HANDICAPPING FORMULA.

EXAMPLENOT WHAT I ACTAULLY BELIEVE)

STARTING PITCHING 70%

BULLPEN L10 DAYS 10%

BULLPEN OVERALL 5%

L/R VS.STARTERS 5%

LINEUPS VS.STARTER 10%

TOTAL 100%

I'VE READ SOME EXCELLENT HANDICAPPING POSTS IN THE PAST HERE IN B.W.SO I KNOW THERE ARE SOME GREAT HANDICAPPERS OUT THERE.

ANY INPUT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

I EXPECT MY DEAR FRIEND RENO TO BE FIRST UP TO THE PLATE.

ALL OUR SMALL DIFFERENCES ASIDE FROM READING PROFESSOR RENO'S POSTS ON BASEBALL ,I BELIEVE THIS IS HIS STRONG SUIT...

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP.
