Seeking Volunteers

Yesterday I posted a FanPost postulating that the injuries in the Twins bullpen were a result of it's key setup men being consistently overused. Now comes the process of proving or disproving the hypothesis. However, undertaking that sort research is a tad bit daunting, that's where you come in. I'm looking for 4-5 volunteers to help take on one division each.

The task:

Compile data on each teams primary relievers over the past decade. I'm thinking that by compiling the usage and injury data on each teams two or three primary relievers for each season, we can get an idea of 1) how other teams use their relievers and 2) what sort of injuries result.

 

If teams use pitchers the same way the Twins do, and injuries do not result, it could be assumed that the Twins have simply been unlucky, as some people think. However, if teams are using their primary relievers differently than that Twins, and NOT seeing injuries, one could speculate that those lighter workloads are at least somewhat to credit for the increased health.

If you're interested, you can simply leave a note here or e-mail me at CoreyEttinger@gmail.com. I'll be happy to take on which ever division the others don't want - you know, like the NL Central.
