    Most Value Provided By A Cincinnati Pitcher

    Okay. I am lazy and it is raining so I decided to putter around with some Cincinnati Reds statistics. This is a look at which pitchers in Reds history provided the most value to the Cincinnati franchise. This list probably doesn't directly correlate to the best pitchers in Reds history. It is not an attempt to do that. I simply took ERA+ (a measure of how well they pitched) and multiplied it by the Innings Pitched (a measure of how much they pitched). In other words, quality times quantity. I took the top 50 by ERA+ and the top 50 by Innings Pitched as listed in baseball-reference.com. Some pitchers are on both lists hence only 70 pitchers here. If a pitcher wasn't in the top 50 in either category he wasn't going to make this list. At least anywhere near the top end of it. Included is the last year they pitched for the Reds. A number of these names are probably not very familiar so that was added for a smidgeon of context.
