Really neat! I just went through Jonny Venters page to see if I could figure out why he has been so bad this year. Before, all I could figure out was that he was getting hit real hard this year by good batters (#1 thru #5 in the lineup). Now I can see that it is his bread-n-butter pitch (sinker); it’s not just more home runs but more doubles and line drives; and it doesn’t look like the pitch itself has changed much.
So maybe there an increased skill by good batters v that pitch – or maybe he’s telling the pitch.
Would it be possible to add a custom range split, rather than just month-by-month? Or “stacking” splits (such as vs L AND away AND high leverage) ?

Excellent job — and thanks for the hard work you continue to give us… though new additions to FG have almost become commonplace, it’s always amazing how much you guys do on a consistent basis. One more request while we’re at it… would it be possible to add these splits to a sortable leaderboard? Thanks again for the great work.
