  1. John – Yes, but a useful additional dimension – which guys were primarily starters and which were relievers? Starters have a greater chance to figure in a win decision. For example,Brad Ziegler was in 739 games, but had zero starts in his 11-year MLB career. Chris Devenski has had only 7 starts in 221 game appearances so far.
