Dodgers are bad right now, so I’m gathering a bunch of stuff from Fangraphs’ pitch values and putting it into a single spreadsheet. Right now I’m just working on 2009. If you’d like to see what I’ve collected, email me at xcoughitup (gmail account).
I’m trying to create some data out of it too, about the value of pitch speed per type of pitch, esp. relating to fastballs. Good stuff.
Tomorrow morning, I’m posting an interview with Tony Gwynn Jr., who just found out he’ll be out for the rest of the season with a broken hand, about defense and what makes him so good at it. I really liked talking to him.
And then next week I have another one with Rich Renteria, the Padres’ 1B coach and defensive positioning dude.
