### Stat Nerd Alert ! Help Me Out Here !

In my quest to incorporate additional statistics into my player evaluation, I came across this article on THT. I have looked at and have a basic understanding of park factors. This article by Jeff Sackmann, math nerd extraordinaire seems to take it to another level. So I came to the nerdiest stat nerds I could thnk of to find some help. As a Coach, I understand pull hitters. They annoy me and can be situationally valuable, but I understand the mechanics. I teach more of a balanced approach at the plate that depends on early pitch recognition and paitence, rather than a singular plate approach. How would recognition and evaluation of this type of data help ? Does it tell me what parks a player has a better chance to be successful ? Does it provide a clearer picture of a hitters ISO potential ? So Xanthan, Missing Barry, Roger, and others, help me out here. Is this data helpful in theory or just additional noise ?
