Stats and Strikes

Here are a couple of interesting topics...

First, a co-worker reminded me that MLB and fantasy leaguers are in conflict over licensing the statistics. Wondering how this might affect others, like THT and Baseball Prospectus who profit from the stats...hmmm

Second, check out the article Mapping the Strikezone by David Appelman on THT. Wonderful graphs with pitch data from 2005. His first two graphs validates, but only a little, the conventional wisdom that left-handed hitters like the ball down or out over the plate while right-handed hit the inside pitch better. Very cool.
