Starting Pitcher, 25 May

Since we last looked at Heath Phillips’ chart he has had a win against Columbus and a loss to Toledo on the 20th. Other than his unfortunate tendency to give up the long ball (10 so far this year), he seems to have leveled out. What would be nice for tonight is for him to start working those curves downward.

Question for readers: Are these charts of any particular value to look at prior to a game?


  1. I will say that I do like the graphs and I think they are informative, but I don't think they have to be tied to that day's starting pitcher. Basically, just because Phillips is pitching today doesn't mean I wouldn't find a graph about Hellickson or anyone else interesting.

    p.s. I think there is a bit of name confusion up there at the start of the post.

  2. Oh man, I've been on a run of errors. Fundamental problem of blogs is that they (at least this one) could do with an editor.
    Corrected. It's Heath Phillips.
    Thanks for comments.
