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.

    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.
