Is it possible that we want fly ball pitchers?
Is it possible for fly ball pitchers to have success at GABP?
I don't want to get into the ideas of "rally killers" and the like but is it possible that although fly ball pitchers give up more "cheap"
home runs, they also get outs out of balls that would become hits and lead to bigger innings?
Just something percolating in my brain and I'm trying to piece together some statistical justification.
If say Cueto gives up X more home runs than a similarly skilled ground ball pitcher, how many fewer
hits would he need to give up to make up for it.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
