  4. Lincecum’s metabolism won’t be able to handle those pregame Big Macs forever…

  8. If you really want to check for seasonal trends on a guy, why not just use something like a Mann-Kendall trend test that adjusts for seasonal patterns? They use those sort of things for studying stuff like “Is water temperature in Lake X increasing over time?” (which has basically the same type of data, a series of daily observations of the property of interest, which have some seasonal variation).

    I’m pretty sure that the Kendall package for R (both freely available) would do the trick: http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/Kendall/Kendall.pdf

    This won’t tell you when to worry, but it WILL tell you something more statistically relevant about if a guy’s velocity is changing.

  11. Where and how did you mine this data? I am interested in establishing and maintaining a databse of this information.

  12. Lincecum is pitching at 89-90 mph in the 5th innning. I’m not sure how he’s actually getting anyone out when his change is at like 83.
