On curveballsby Derek Carty
August 18, 2008
Just a quick post to draw your attention to the main site for my latest article, titled "On Curveballs". It tackles curveballs using PITCHf/x data: the different types of curves, where it is best to locate curves, and some other stuff I found interesting. Read it over if you're interested, although there is nothing directly related to fantasy baseball in there. I will probably be referring to it in player analysis going forward, but you needn't try to remember all the minutia of it. I'll point out what's important from it in each player analysis.
