The Hardball Times graphical report

As some of you know, the Hardball Times posted team stats and graphs the last six years, a practice we had to cancel this year when our economics could no longer support purchasing the data. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to get them to you ever since, and I think I’ve hit on a format that might work for you and me. (Readable for you, manageable workload for me).

Announcing…the Hardball Times Graphical Report. It’s a nine-page Adobe Acrobat file that consists of a cover story (stolen from THT’s pages this week) along with division standings and twelve different awesome graphs. Download it here:

The Hardball Times Graphical Report

All the information is current through yesterday’s games. I haven’t added any commentary to the graphs—perhaps I should. They’re not exactly intuitive, but I do think they’re very useful and worth a little work.

Anyway, what do you think? Is this download worth it to you? What would you like to see added or done differently? Gimme feedback.

    awesome! thanks for doing this. i especially enjoy the divison standing graphs (i’ve been missing them this year).

    I love this. It is a really quick-and-easy way to see what makes a team bad, good, or just plain average. Can you provide daily updates?  Commentary would be great, but maybe just once a week, to highlight trends for certain teams maybe.

    This is awesome, even for a Pittsburgh Pirates fan like myself (man, they are brutal and lucky to have won 7 more games than they should have).

    As a newbie I am much impressed with the clarity and scope of the data.  I like them just as they are.  Let me dig out the results on my own.  CWS are on a roll and my Twins are reeling…After the Twins recent series with Rays my respect for them grows….what a great season…thanks

    The power/obp graph for the AL is shocking. Seeing the freakish season the Jays have put up so far is just unbelievable.
