I know things have been quiet around here lately, well at least from me. I’m working on gathering data and building databases for my offseason projects. I now have my pitch f/x database built and I’m starting to delve into that. Some things I plan to look at are:
- Nate Robertson – what the hell happened to him
- Justin Verlander – what the hell happened to him
- Plate discipline for the hitters
- Pitch selection by catcher
Do you have other things you’d like me to look at with this data? For those who aren’t familiar with pitch f/x, itis the system that displays pitch trajectories in the MLB Gameday application. So we can examine pitch movement, velocity, location, selection, etc. I can’t make guarantees about turning around every suggestion, but if it’s something that a)I think is interesting, b)I can do it, then there’s a good chance it will get done.
