Numbers in Pavano story

Joe Christiansen of the Minneapolis Star Tribune used numbers in his recent story on possible free-agent-to-be Carl Pavano.

At its core, baseball is a numbers game. Christiansen analyzed pitchers of similar age across the league to try to find a comparable possible contract for Pavano.

He analyzed Pavano's ERA, innings pitched, and win-loss record over the last six years to provide a realistic gauge of Pavano's worth.

Finally he told provided the numbers for complete games across the league for the 2010 season -- Pavano was second -- and relayed it's importance because those seven complete games and 221 innings pitched came on an otherwise-young pitching staff with injuries and slumps throughout the season.
