  1. “the Braves entered the day third in runs score in the American League.”

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say this might be a typo…

  2. No mention of how the “Man in White” inflated his numbers?

  3. I would like to see his Curve return to where it was early in his Rockies career

  4. A typo and a league change in one sentence. Goes with “The resulting 91 game score tied four three others for the season’s 14th best.” Still a very nice article. Thanks, Jack.

  5. Awful mistakes. Thanks for the heads ups, it’s fixed now.

  6. Great article. Would like to see more like it, breaking down hitters and pitchers with data and/or game videos.

    Credit also has to go to Rick Peterson, I believe, who tweaked Hammel’s mechanics that got him (1) extra velocity and (2) the ability to get more on top of the ball enabling the sinker.

  7. dude was no one-year wonder. Take a look at his WAR for 2009-2010, and tell me that’s one year wonder. Hint, both years, higher WAR than 2012.

  8. Although his WAR was higher in both years he also pitched 59.2, and 52.1 more innings. If you normalize his WAR, this year was the highest. I don’t think he is a one hit wonder considering that the change in mechanics and additional pitch can be used to rationalize the better performance.
