Matt Harvey only threw his fastball away from righties in his first 5 starts. Not in last 5 starts - big change.
Location of Harvey Four Seam FBs to Lefties so far: Green Ys = Whiffs, Blue squares = Outs, Black Xs = Hits.
The locations of Matt Harvey changeups against lefties. The Red Xs resulted in hits, Green Ys resulted in whiffs
My attempt at classifying Matt Harvey's Pitches Red=4seam; Orange=2seam; Yellow=Change; Blue=Slider; Purple=Curve
@mbonzo31 Re: your post: I've isolated the movement/speed clusters of Dickey's so-called curve/forkball.
Through the Tampa Start, the breakdown of Dickey's knuckleball velocity over the last 3 years.
This is about 4 weeks out of date, but the same thing is seen now. @harrypav @blcartwright
And here's Parnell's average fastball velocity per batter faced in each appearance. That first batter is lucky.
@graves9 It does indeed appear to be down a little bit on both fastballs (Warning not my classifications).
Is this graph, showing the change in Niese's pitch usage throughout the season, too busy to read?
Bumgardner's usage of the slider/cutter by count has also changed: massive usage in 2 ball counts compared to 2010
Look at the locations of these Drabek Cutters. Quite interesting.
@DBITLefty See the spikes middle-high? The Smoothing is getting rid of them, in a bit misleading way.
There's no particular height that Bautista has issues with either. (Though High in zone is better than low)
Going away from Jose Bautista no longer works. (Hasn't stopped guys from trying).
Preview for tomorrow's @BtBScore Article: How the pitches of Charlie Morton have changed from 2010 to 2011
On 0-2 Counts, pitchers this year REALLY have not wanted anything to do with the strike zone against Jose Bautista
Mike Pelfrey sure does seem to love his fastballs lately.
Pitchf/x Peeps, #Met Fans, what the heck is up with this from Pelfrey?
Preview for @Btbscore tomorrow: Showing how R.A. Dickey's Knuckler velocity distribution has changed.
