More about Team Walks Plus Hits Per Inning Pitched - WHIP

With the decline of offense in the last decade this figure has gone down somewhat, and due to less offense in the National League the league leader is usually a National League pitching staff.  Generally speaking a team’s starting rotation will have a slightly higher WHIP than a team’s batch of relievers, as they are asked to throw more innings and thus will generally allow more baserunners.  However, overreliance on a team’s bullpen can drain their effectiveness, which is an important aspect of bullpen management.
