Interesting Pitching Stat

Recommended Posts

According to Inside Edge's scouting data, no pitching staff makes hitters chase pitches out of the zone more often than the Twins (30 percent). Of the seven pitchers with the best chase percentage in the majors, four of them are with the Twins, including three members of the starting rotation (Scott Baker, Nick Blackburn and Kevin Slowey).

Right on Wild!

Geno, I ain't saying...I'm just sayin! Those were the stats, ma'am, just the stats, but that was a while ago during the season before Jose took a dump on us! Pale Hose will go with a 4 man rotation thru the regular season and won't need a 5th the rest of the way, if they do, Richard or Broadway have proven to be worthy 5th men. You better be worried about your Cubbies getting shut down by the Koufax/Drysdale pitchers on the dreaded Cinncinnatti Reds team, shut down those Cubbies like a tornado siren last night!!! And the Brew Crew and Cards win....could get interesting. I think I saw Steve Bartman outside the park last night looking for a spare ticket. LOL

And you know what I am going to say in response to that already, right Geno. First I am going to say that half of the quiche eaters at the game probably don't even know the score of the game, they are just texting people on their cell phones and making plans to hit the Cubby Bear or whatever other bar is up there in "boys town" after the game. I was at the game earlier this week and the Cell was pretty full 39,000 plus. Then I will tell you that back in the day the Ford Escort was the highest selling car in the US at one point and will ask you if it was the best car at that time since it was the most popular selling car. And then you will come back with something else that I will already have an answer for, haven't we seen this movie already?

But it's fun!

So what you are saying is all those people dressed in Cubbie blue in Atlanta and Florida and Milwaukee and all the other MLge parks are wrong too?

Fess up now Windy.....you are just jealous of Cubbie favoritism, right?

End of Movie. Be kind...do not rewind.

OH Baseball and their statistics... Did the umps record on all of these pitches that they were indeed out of the strikezone?

Umps arent in charge of stats. If you look at the press box area next time your at the game and see a bunch of people working on their laptops...those are the people who do it.

...so, the umps mark it down on that little card in their shirt pocket and hand it over to one of the dot com propeller heads in the press box after every game? I think not... Sure, the umps are in charge of the calls, but someone else is keeping track of all of these great stats that make MLB so unique..

BTW: Is that 'chase' stat only for swings and misses and foul balls? Seems to me a guy could have a pretty high 'chase' stat, but if they all went for base hits, that's no good...

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
