Visual Baseball: Introducing the Paintomatic
Posted by Kevin Dame
Here's an attempt at visualizing a pitcher's arsenal (what they throw, how often they throw it, and how well they throw it.) How well they "paint" so to speak. For each pitcher you'll see a visual expression of the pitches they throw, with size representing how often they throw it and color indicating the quality of the pitch (measured by Runs Above Average / 100 pitches thrown). I've included Paintomatics for a variety of pitchers - ranging from Cy Young contenders like Zack Grienke and Tim Lincecum to duds like Sidney Ponson and Rich Hill. And a few odd-balls like Tim Wakefield. Let me know what you think.
