Oh so good.

Do you want to know what the average exit velocity of balls hit by Trumbo the week of May 15th?

90.0 MPH

 

Maybe you want to overlay Seth Smith's 2016 spray chart onto OPACY?

Sure, they can do that.

How about his defense in 2016?

Yep, they got it.

How about Kim's game winning pinch hit HR?

Yep, check the media tab.

Shockingly (9_9), John Gibbons is probably the worst challenger in MLB.  League average for challenges has been about 50/50 over the last 3 years.  Gibbons has been 33% over-turned/67% not over-turned, 42/58, 36/64

https://baseballsavant.mlb.com/replay?challenge_type=&year=2016&challenger=teamchallenging&team=Blue Jays

Gibbons has challenged 155 times over the last 3 years compared to 97 for Buck Showalter.

Other team's fans seem to think that Buck complains a lot but that doesn't hold up through these numbers.  Buck is one of the most infrequent challengers in the league, but he's been good at it, getting 53/97 correct.

Stat question:  Why is K:9 often referenced when K:PA is so much more informative?

Just a historical accident from the days where the stats commonly published were IP, R, H, ER, BB and K's.     K/9 is easily calculated from there.

I look at K%, but I often find myself writing the player's K/9 in a post because most people have a better idea of what a good/bad K/9 is compared to what a good/bad K% is.

Edit: Here is a useful chart.

Rating K/9 K%
Excellent 10.0 27.0%
Great 9.0 24.0%
Above Average 8.2 22.0%
Average 7.7 20.0%
Below Average 7.0 17.0%
Poor 6.0 15.0%
Awful 5.0 13.0%

 

Rating BB/9 BB%
Excellent 1.5 4.5%
Great 1.9 5.5%
Above Average 2.5 6.5%
Average 2.9 7.7%
Below Average 3.2 8.0%
Poor 3.5 8.5%
Awful 4.0 9.0%

    • Andrew Luck was dealing with chronic pain.  Chris Davis is injured and Luck is leaving zero guaranteed money on the table. NFL contracts are not guaranteed.
    • I was thinking about this today. How Chris's image would improve if he retired with a buyout agreement favorable to both parties.  Otherwise the general feeling of most people is he is stealing money from the Orioles who have made him a multi-millionaire. Hopefully his wife can get through to him and suggest at the end of the season he retire. I know this is unlikely with Scott Boras as his agent. Maybe Chris can explain to him his frustration with the game and his declining batting skills have caused him to make this decision.
    • This guy is on fire.....I'm wondering if the guys that said he'd be Nontendered this offseason are ready to eat crow?? C'mon gents, we know who you are!
    • I thought I read something about 80 million from MASN a while back. Even with Davis, Cobb, and Trumbo contracts the Os are making a pretty hefty profit just on the national and MASN deals.   So even if the number 0nly 110-120 million in revenue between the 2 deals ...the payroll is only 72 million and certain to ge less next year. A 40 million surplus times 2
    • When I lived in L.A. and often went down the block to Mexican taco and burrito vans for dinner, cabeza was one of my favorites.
    • I was at the Shorebirds vs my hometown Hagerstown Suns where 3,106 showed up for a Low A baseball doubleheader featuring a Mike Mussina bobble head for the first 1,000 fans (unfortunately I was in the 2,106 who didn’t get one).  Of course game one also had Grayson Rodriquez pitching to Adley Rutchman.  I will stick to attendance in this thread and say that the orange and black dominated the crowd in this Nationals affiliate’s park.   Not sure how long the rebuild will take but there is definitely some excitement for the future out here in the hinterlands.
