Didn’t watch much of the game last night, but here’s a quick look at what Peavy threw to Lance Berkman. The idea was brought up by Dex in another thread … of course, it’d be more useful to do on a broad scale looking at all the batters he faces and stuff like that, but I guess this will do for now.
Berkman went 2-2 with a walk against Peavy and saw 16 pitches in 3 PA. Here’s the breakdown of pitches:
Fastballs: 4 (93.75)
Sliders 12 (85.9)
Alright, here’s something a little different. This graph shows the horizontal movement (compared to a theoretical spin less pitch) and vertical movement of each pitch Berkman saw (in order). The two black lines were drawn by me to separate the 3 PA:
Here’s just speed:
