    Reds Golf Score

    Reds are at a +1 (9-9 thru 2 holes)

    11-11 thus far on the 3rd hole.

    Need to win 3 in the next 5 to keep par.

    The first hole was a double bogey (3-6).

    On pace for a 84-78. Kind of subjective, but I say 90 wins is about par. So on pace for a +6.

    I can change "par" to anything though so feel free to recommend a different number.

    Smith, I think Par being at about 90 makes the most sense. Not only is that what it takes to win the division, but it's a relatively stable goal for each 9 game stretch.

    Good stuff. I always like this.

    It technically should be the wild card record but I hate moving goalposts.

    I like 90 for par too. It just makes sense. 5-4 is par for a hole. You aren't thrilled with par, but it doesn't hurt you.

    Re: Reds Golf Score

    Par should be much lower. Par is a relational score, half the teams should be above it and half below it. 81 should be par. But I'd be ok with 84.

    I would rather strive for 5-4 as a marker for how well your team is doing as it relates to playoff teams

    90 was par when this was done previously. It's clean and works perfectly with the 18 hole concept.

    I prefer to count losses, so that makes par 72, which makes much more sense to me.

    Sometimes par is good enough.

    Reds -1
    Pirates +2
    Cards +3
    Brewers +6
    'Stros +7
    sCrubs +11

    Also, I have exciting news! I have submitted to the Apple AppStore an app that will give you a leaderboard of all the teams and their golf score as well as each team's performance. I have it slated as $1.99 (it's pretty niche) but here's some screenshots.

    It's the Dodgers because they are currently leading the leaderboard and so it was easier to just show them in the screenies.

    Re: Reds Golf Score

    Love it.

    As you move forward, the hole by hole par could be tweaked due to matchups, pitchers, injuries, etc, and the 9 and 18 hole par determinations could also be determined by weak teams, home/ away schedule/ west coast swings, et al.

    For example, IMO, the Reds have actually done better than -1 because they've played an extremely tough schedule so far. Last 18, they play 7 games against teams with a plus run differential and 11 games away from the cozy confines of Great American. They also faced the top starter of opposing teams five times. I'd guess that looks like a par score of 73, maybe 74.

    The next 18-- with six road games and every home series against teams with a negative run differential-- should be a par 70 or even 69.

    Just FTR Smith, your app says "Devil Rays". Other than that though, looks great!

    Holy moly Scrap... I wouldn't even know how to begin of such an algorithm. haha. It's a moving goalpost though and im not a huge fan of that. Some stuff could be subjective as the season progresses.

    Thanks for the ideas though and I will think about how some of those things could be implemented.
