ORC% – Offensive Runs Created, as a percentage of the league average
ORC+ – Offensive Runs Created, where the league average for teams is 100, and every point above 100 is a percentage point above league average.
PRA% – Pitching Runs Allowed, as a percentage of the league average
PRA+ – Pitching Runs Allowed, where the league average for teams is 100, and every point above 100 is a percentage point above league average.
The conditional formatting for the board is set similarly to incomparable Baseball Savant where red is elite, all the way down to blue being the worst. So regardless which side of the ball we’re analyzing, we’re always looking for the color red and higher numbers on ORC+/PRA+.
You’ll also notice teams have different colors assigned to them. This is based on team wOBA over the last seven days, updated daily. Think of it as being on a heat scale. I always like to keep a team’s last 250 PA in mind before making my decisions. It’s a very helpful tool in avoiding a buzzsaw.

Dogcatcher Disclaimer: I was asked to post these picks because for whatever strange reason, the MLBMA algo does pick these in bunches. I do not ever throw more than just a few bucks on these, but I’ve hit them several times this year already and frankly it’s been really profitable for me throwing $10 at them.
