This is really the first year where lots of the kids are getting data from trackman at their events. Since I have snow up to my butt here, I have been studiously researching, reading, and comparing players data.
Then I jumped the shark and actually asked a pitching coach (adbono)about the data and of course got the expected reply. "I would have to see him pitch."
Of course he is correct. After looking over all the data and comparing it, something jumped out at me.
The "analysts" love Velo, movement, spin, extension, IVB etc.
But I have yet to read an analysis that even mentioned % of pitches in the zone!
So what the hell, I am Nuke la Nuke, but can't throw it for a strike?!
