There are those who look at things the way they are and ask why . . . I dream of things that never were and ask why not
Like all managers, I keep the starters in too long or take them out too late. To give myself a little more leeway, I devised this pitch-count variant.

1. Walks = 4

2. Strikeouts = 3

3. All outs, hits, hbp, wps and pbs = 1 each.

Multiply x2.

This has worked surprising well. All Ks do not equal six pitches, walks eight pitches or, obviously, everything else just one pitch. It seems to come pretty close to evening out.

In the event there aren't many Ks or BBs, which is what evens things out, if it is the fifth inning and the total is thirty or less x 2 1/2, in the sixth, thirty-five or less x 2 1/2 and the seventh on, forty or less.
