Effect of pitcher symbols on batter rating

I adjusted my rating method to take average pitcher symbols into account on the batters’ cards. As expected, the effect is most profound for guys with big walk & HR ranges, as can be seen for a few guys in the table below. “Before” means pitcher symbols were not taken into account; “after” means they were taken into account.

The higher-rated players will have bigger differences, simply because lots of homers & walks make them highly rated. Of course, nothing changed in the cards, it’s just that I overrated the batters. Assuming my current ratings are much more accurate, I overrated Burrell’s performance by 7.4%, not an insignificant amount!
