He became interested in quantifying the skills necessary for relievers to succeed in high leverage roles, presenting his research at Saberseminar in 2017.
And now that research is available for SportsLine users. Paul's metric can help identify which pitchers can build off their hot starts can sustain it, who might be fool's gold, and who has a chance to come away as the the runaway favorite in a muddled situation. .

The metric also identifies other sleepers to target, plus some big names who might be pitching their way out of a job.
