Posted by crickett13 on 5/21/2013 1:26:00 PM (view original):I use a percentage on each pitch that adds up to 100. On a 5 pitch pitcher the 1st pitch is 55% and the last is 5% on a 2 pitch guy the 1st pitch is 65% and the second pitch is worth 35%.Not sure if it makes sense but I am used to it.
Do you give extra consideration for true knuckleballers?

When you state 1st pitch, 2nd pitch, etc - are you determining them in the order they are shown or taking the highest rated pitch as P1, 2nd as P2, etc?
Posted by duece112 on 5/21/2013 10:19:00 AM (view original):When doing my evaluations I evaluate on a 0-100 score basis. So control + vL + vR + Vel + FB/GB + Pitches are all assigned a certain percentage that adds up to 1 (or 100) and multiply and sum. I have a different formula to get one score for pitches. I was curious if someone wants to get with me to brainstorm on a better pitch evaluation score... for instance if you just average the pitches (that have a rating above zero) two pitch relievers frequently have a much higher score than a 4 or 5 pitch starter. The thought being that 4 80 pitches is better than 2 80 pitches.
Any one want to discuss, we can share on here or you can sitemail me...
