    Is there a place to find data on a starting pitchers ERA or like stats by pitches thrown? Like their ERA between 1 – 20 pitches thrown, then 21 – 40 and so on all the way to 120+? Would be interesting to see when a pitcher seems to be most vulnerable by pitch count or when they hit their groove, like i.e. Volquez. I like this better than innings because pitch counts can fluctuate wildly within innings. Thanks!

    Livan does not have the slowest fastball. He is slightly slower than Dickey, but on only the 3rd player I looked at I found someone considerably slower — Wakefield at 72.8 MPH. Not that this somehow makes Livan less of a sorcerer.

    Dave, take five minutes and learn the math behind a seven-game playoff series. Saying the Softbank Hawks have a 30-40% chance against the Red Sox in a seven-game series implies they have a 40-45% chance to win a single game on a neutral field. There is no way in hell that is even close to correct; even the average MLB team can’t win that often against Boston.

    Playoff series aren’t actually coin flips.
