However, if a batter fouls off 100 pitches in a season, how does that compare to the guy that fouls off 30 in a season? If my guy goes from 100 to 50 in a season, is he getting better, worse, or is it inconsequental? Same for pitchers.
How about comparing how batters who foul off a high number of pitches perform in subsequent ABs. I think I'm getting to like this SABR stuff.
