I’ve read what Dan Szymborski had to write at http://www.baseballthinkfactory.org/btf/scholars/czerny/articles/calculatingMLEs.htm and understood all that good and well.

However I have a couple questions.

1) What is the expected % of drop off for AA and lower? Without this knowledge it’s impossible to calculate MLEs for players below AAA

2) What is the formula for calculating MLEs for pitchers?

Thanks for any help you can give :)
