Fun stuff, as always. But - "Shelly" Miller?
Enjoyed the article. A question, though: Do we know how accurate the data is? For example, when a home run is hit, the distance is always announced - but I wonder what the +/- is on the measurement. Could error in the data be what's making it hard to predict total distance traveled based upon initial velocity of the ball off the bat?
Related to #7: Managers do look at lefty/righty match-ups when utilizing their bullpens. Would it be worthwhile for teams to try to identify pitchers who are more effective with men on base and use them more often in high leverage situations? (And similarly, to use relievers who are less effective pitching from the stretch - and holding runners on base - to start off innings.) Is there enough variation from pitcher to pitcher for this to matter? Do reliable statistics exist to measure these things?
