Updated Pitching Leaderboards

Many people spend long weekends doing things like Spring Cleaning.  I certainly qualified.  My PITCHf/x data is fresh and better.  I've re-tagged events and sorted out issues identifying certain events.  I've also updated my run value table, but I'm under estimating the 2009 run environment, so the "average" rv100 for 2009 pitchers is actually 0.04 instead of 0.00.

In the process of re-tagging events, I found some of the "baselines" shifted.  If you "read on" you'll find a big table of all sorts of stats (leaders and trailers in two groups), here are the baselines.
