Here's (http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index.php/michael-schwimer-pitch-by-pitch-stat-geek/) an interesting article on how minor league pitcher, Michael Schwimmer uses the latest technology to review his outings.

His thoughts are pretty interesting and it's hard to pick just one but here's a tease:

ďWhen I do the charting, I try to take out baseballís traditional-result goals. As a reliever, if you give up a few hits and a run, thatís considered a bad outing. I take that out of consideration and put into consideration how many times I was able to make the pitch I wanted to make. In the long run, the more often Iím able to make the pitch I want, the more often Iím going to get good results.
