Complete SP Rankings: Week 8

USA TODAY Sports

Brian Creagh ranks all starting pitchers slated to throw in Week 8

Made some updates to the SSS Matrix - there will be 3 versions of the matrix from now one. The first will be the same as the original, the next two will be split out by righty/lefty splits. Because the sample size still isn't that large (especially for righties) and because teams haven't all played roughly the same amount of games against lefties, I decided to change the x-axis to Runs per Plate Appearance for the second and third matrices. I feel this gives a better indicator of a team's success against a specific handedness then from just using Runs. Feel free to make any additional suggestions in the comments or on twitter (@BrianCreagh)
