I only agree to actually think about my answers if what I'm thinking about is lunch.
- a) higher
- b) 15-20%
- c) Pitching from the stretch, a more stressful situation, and distraction of the runner
- d) Yes
- e) Turkey and jack on a soft roll with mayo and cranberry sauce
I’m curious. My 1st thought was the percentage with no runners on would be higher. Why did you think it would be higher with runners on.
Well, I didn’t find anyone with a difference of more than 9.4% among pitchers who had thrown to 100 batters or more. However, I did find that 87% of those pitchers had a higher percentage with runners on which indicates you had a better thought about it than I. But I also found that 88% of pitchers had a higher opponent’s BA WRO, and the overall difference was 53 points.
To me that means something is being done WRO that perhaps should be looked at.
Soft rolls are for girls. Make mine a sour dough hard roll every time!
