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!
chris davis fans keep dreaming…
idiot fantasy guy on here jinx j shields. hahahah
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.
I must have been looking at qualified only:
Without the qualifying qualifier, Livo the Magnificent is 8th:
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.
