Please help me understand MLBTS pitching attributes

SDS

Does anyone know why some of the attributes are backwards compared to real life for pitchers?

In the real world, having lower BB/9, H/9, and HR/9 numbers are better but in The Show, having higher numbers are better. Do these attributes mean something else than what I think they do?

The lower bb9 h9 % the higher the rating.

No, the higher the number the smaller the PCI of the hitter. That's really all it entails as far as I've heard/read/seen.

They do mean something else. They are ratings not actual statistics (the real life numbers are stats). The ratings are so that we can very easily compare players and attributes by ranking them with a score out of a common maximum number. Started out being a maximum value of 100 (like percentages, made sense) but then the maximum was increased to 125.

As a real world example, my first pitch swing rating would still be around 45. 😐
