Today In It's Hard To Throw Strikes

New, 8 comments

Below, you will see eight pitches thrown last night to Chone Figgins. All eight pitches came during two late trips to the plate, and all eight pitches were balls, as Figgins drew two walks. Neither situation was a situation in which a walk was appropriate, and Chone Figgins is possibly, if not definitely the worst hitter in baseball. Batting behind him was Greg Halman, an overaggressive yet powerful hitter who earlier had blasted a home run.

Pitchers need the hitters' help more often than you might realize.
