Graph of the Day: Line Drives and Whiffs

New, comments

Playing around with the Gameday and PITCHf/x data is fun.  We're working on a few things behind the curtains down here in Mom's Basement.  Here's some early output of those efforts, and I'm giving you all two graphs today since I'm not sure what to make of this.  Heck, you may never see Swiningg Strike to Line Drive ratios from me ever again.  I dunno.

Two groups, based on pitch counts, and three segments within each.  Best five, closest to average (which was about ~2.45 SS:LD across all Pitch f/x data) and the worst five.

Pelfrey, Silva and Loux are actually < 1.0, meaning they've yielded more line drives than whiffs.  That's awful.
