Analyzing bullpens at midseason

(To view the charts accompanying this report, subscribe to Point Spread Weekly)
We’ve reached midseason in Major League Baseball, and I place great importance on bullpen strength. This is a great time to familiarize yourself with the performance levels of all 30 bullpens, as you still have half a season to take advantage of the vast disparities among teams. 
I probably lean on my bullpen ratings more than ever, as I think the extra-inning change before last season implementing the California rules has enhanced the importance of pitchers who can get hitters out. As a result, I have placed even more emphasis on the strikeouts-per-nine-innings calculations. You’ll see those here with some other key stats for games through Monday.
