Justin has a new mini-study up over at his excellent blog, and it’s very interesting. I’m looking forward to seeing how this new type of data — based on the pitch-tracking that you can now see through MLB.com’s Gameday feature — will allow us to learn more about what makes a good pitcher.

Blame Chad for creating this mess.

Chad launched Redleg Nation in February 2005, and has been writing about the Reds ever since. His first book, “The Big 50: The Men and Moments That Made the Cincinnati Reds” is now available in bookstores and online, at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever fine books are sold. You can also find Chad’s musings about the Cincinnati Reds in the pages of Cincinnati Magazine.

  1. I liked what I saw on the Brewers fan site, which is similar to what you linked to, but a bit more informative IMO about what makes a pitcher good. They featured 3 Reds pitchers. http://www.brewcrewball.com/story/2007/9/14/112720/992 For starters, it does a great job of identifying release points, because consistency there is a huge precursor to sustained success. Good stuff.
