“After a trip to the mound by an opposing pitching coach we have found a stat that says the following pitch is going to be 98% fast ball.”

JC,

Where did you find a stat like that? It’s not that it doesn’t sound logical on its face, but I’d sure like to get a look at those numbers.

I will clarify. It is NOT a stat like the one's you so aptly use. After 30 years of coaching, after a trip to the mound in a stressful situation, we have found that our hitters receive a fast ball down the middle. Our players chart this on our clipboard under a document I created that charts what various pitchers throw or have thrown on certain counts, like a 2-0 change up etc.

We also suicide squeeze right after a trip to the mound during stressful situations and have stolen home the very next pitch after a trip to the mound.

We have also found that right handed hitters hit 90% of balls to the glove side of our third baseman and thus we play in the 5.5 hole a lot, except for No Double situations or other extreme cases.

Sorry for being so vague the first time.

You’re wrong! It’s exactly a stat like the ones I use. You track it, collate the results, then figure out how to present it in a way that’s useful. That’s a perfect way to use stats to understand the game and help in the management of the personnel.

If you're gonna yell at me ....

Have it your way. Whenever you and I get after it, you have to be the only one who is correct.

See ya.
