Andrew McCutchen had a very solid sophomore year in 2010, but he experienced an extended slump around midseason that dragged his overall numbers down a bit. Anecdotally, at least to my eyes, he seemed to be a little pull-happy during this period. Unfortunately, I could not quantify this.
Unfortunately, due to real life responsibilities, I have been unable to watch either of Brad Lincoln’s past two starts. However, I wanted to share a quick nugget of Pitch f/x data that I noticed this morning. Click here to see a pitch location comparison between Lincoln’s start last night and his June 30th start in which he threw seven shutout innings.
