  2. Nice catch.

  3. “Reason’s” could be short for “Reason is”, making it “Reason is Behind Tulo’s Power”. It would basically mean the same thing.

  4. Where do you get data for batted ball angle?

  5. I would like to see his hitting distribution compared to where he is being pitched; it would be interesting to find out he is taking outside pitches and jerking them to left field.

  6. I have to calculate the data. MLB gives out the x/y value for all batted balls. I then take the data turn it into a distance and angle values. I plan on eventually making the data available for everyone, but the processing behind it is huge. If there is any other players you want looked at let me know.

  7. I would like to see the same treatment for Prince Fielder. It seems like he’s going the other way a lot so far this year, and with power, resulting in big time results.

  8. No it wouldn’t.

  9. Question: how many games and at bats has Tulo had since coming back from surgery? That seems like important context for this article.

    If Tulo preforms at 90% of that level and stays healthy, he has to be considered a top five talent.

  10. He already was a top 5 talent, if he performs like this he will be an Albert Pujols talent.

  11. unless of course he is batting against Timmah.

  12. Unless Tulo’s become a philosopher, and Reason’s now a major part of his approach

  13. Moose made me laugh!

  14. As a shortstop playing half of his games in Denver. Should be fun.

  15. I’d be interested in seeing this done for Nelson Cruz

  16. It would be interesting to superimpose on the plot the standard deviation in the angular distribution for each month. This would help in discriminating between real changes and statistical fluctuations, though the trend over time is clear.
