  1. Excellent work, Dave. Now let’s not let Cameron find out you called him Cameroon.

  2. Whoops, thanks for noticing that. I changed it. I must have had west Africa on the mind.

  3. I assume the huge disparity of the vertical movement is due to the different ballpark readings. A curveball with positive vertical movement? It is not really a curve then, more of a slider.

    Anyway good stuff Dave

  4. I think you are probably right. I used all pitchf/x numbers, going back to 2007 when the ballpark discrepancies were even worse. The old Yankee Stadium was particularly bad and I am sure he had lots of starts there over the pitchf/x era.

  6. Those really are four distinct pitches. And he mixes them well and throws them all quite often. Now wonder he’s the best pitcher in baseball.

  7. Correction: He’s THE greatest pitcher in the game. I think Greinke will regress like he already is and Doc will catch up to win the Cy Young. Edwin Jackson and Jarrod Washburn are also bound to regress. I say Halladay is gonna go on a dominant run like we haven’t seen even from him yet.

  8. Doc could always use that changeup more, its actually effective. There was 2-3 starts where he threw it about 20 times, needless to say in 2 of them he went 9 innings.
