21 Aug 2014: Potentially Entertaining Game Scores

This is the BETA version of a method of rating games for their potential to provided entertaining baseball. The formula is still in development, but is refined enough at the moment that it can guide you towards games where the batters will get on base and hit for power, the fielders cover ground and throw well and the pitchers induce the batter to swing. Games are rated on the 20-80 scale, with 50 being an average score.

PEGS for 21/VIII/2014
San Francisco vs Cubs  65
Atlanta vs Cincinnati  62
Detroit vs Tampa Bay   61
Cleveland vs Minnesota 55
Houston vs Yankees     53
San Diego vs Dodgers   53
Angels vs Boston       52
Arizona vs Washington  51

By pitching match-ups alone, today's top game is the West Coast encounter setting Tyson Ross against Clayton Kershaw.
