  1. Seems like an advertisement for Fangraphs…

    Awesome to see ‘real’ world application by players!

  2. So this is what it feels like to be in a circle jerk. Everyone’s favorite front office, with everyone’s favorite under appreciated reliever, praising fangraphs and “our” way of thinking.

    But seriously, this was fun.

  3. My only real memory of Badenhop is him getting absolutely shelled by the Dodgers a few years ago.

  4. I don’t understand why more pitchers don’t analyse their results like Badenhop. If you are being paid or have the potential to be paid millions of dollars to perform a task and you fail at that task, wouldn’t you want to know why? You would think pitchers would analyse each of their appearances and figure out what they did right and wrong and try to correct their mistakes or at least understand if the mistakes are correctable.

  5. @Bill, Of course. But the problem is that they’re brought up through the game believing in what coaches tell them, and they’re surrounded by traditionalist coaches everywhere they go. So they think they are dong the best they can to improve, by going to their pitching coach, and when it doesn’t work out, it’s their own fault, not the coach’s, team’s, or system’s.

    It’s nice to see what they’re doing in Tampa, but I think they’re still easily in the minority.
