More cool stuff on the leaderboards

Erik Bedard threw the highest percentage of curveballs of any pitcher with over 100 IP, a whopping 34.2% of his pitches.

9% of Curt Schilling’s pitches are “unidentified”.

Jeff Weaver threw over to first a lot. But then, he did have a lot of runners over there.

    Is there any reason to believe that his propensity for curve balls leads to his apparent durability issues?

    I’m still waiting for the unicode for a rimshot.

    I thought Weaver gave up a metric f-tonne of doubles? WTF was he doing throwing over to first?

    My thoughts exactly, Paul. He was extra-base-tastic all season. Maybe they were wild pitches.

    9% of Schilling is unidentified (rimshot). Sorry, that was Clemens (rimshot).

    I wonder if those unidentified pitches were the ones following the the one where he broke the QuesTec camera?

    More seriously, is there an explanation somewhere of those abbreviations? I can guess at some of them but… sorting would be more fun if I knew what I was sorting on. Fangraphs doesn’t seem to have updated their glossary since they added these new features.

    Also, I seem to remember someone from Spiro Oklahoma who seemed to throw to first an awful lot…

    Ryan Franklin throws 7 different pitches on a regular basis. That’s absurd.

    Speak of the devil…

    Jim Caple catches RA Dickey

    I’m not sure what this would go under, but is airing live the exhibition game between the New York Yankees and Virginia Tech Hokies …

    Meanwhile, the scrolling feature story marquee over at has a video link to Dickey throwing knucklers at Jim Caple’s head. It’s the best of every world!

    Ah, touché, msb. As long as everyone sees it. 🙂

    he, headline at “Who will replace Ramirez.”

    Hopefully Kazmir returns to his 2006 pitching style: more sliders and more changeups.

    For the sake of my fantasy team.

    my favorite headline of late is Fox’s “Ichiro’s cold spring causing M’s concern”, which was heading an article about how unconcerned the Mariners and Ichiro were about his spring numbers.

    also good to see:
    “Veteran southpaw Sherill wins O’s closer job”
