Data is based on 2010 results to date from Baseball-Reference, pulled 06/13/10.
Notes, Thoughts, and Questions
1. The difference between the best (NYY's 36.56 BPG) and the worst (MIL's 40.58) translates to 4.062 and 4.508 batters faced per inning, respectively.
2. Projected out for a year, that means that NYY would face only 5923 batters while MIL would face 6573. That's a difference of 650 batters. In NYY terms, that's almost 18 extra games of batters!
3. I'd like to break this data down into the various factors that cause a lack of outs. "What's preventing this team from getting a batter out?"
4. What the hell is going on in Milwaukee?
