Thanks, M2! I've been trying to dig through some data and take a look at some stuff from some different angles. We all know hitters perform better when the count is more favorable, but I've never seen anybody actually measure how often different hitters can make the count more favorable.
Part of me believes that type of information could be critically helpful in analyzing minor league and college stats to help see the progression prospects make in terms of plate discipline as they climb the ladder of minor league ranks. It's unfortunate that I've never seen stats by count for minor leaguers or college players, and I'm actually curious if the Reds front office tracks such a thing (if they don't, my first question would be why not?).
