Cold Takes: How to Pitch to the Pitcher

3

Patrick Dubuque

It's rare, but there are occasions where "more cheese" is not the correct answer.

Pitchers are bad at hitting. By the time you finish reading this article, they’ll be even worse: the decline of pitcher offense is one of the most consistent trends in baseball, along with rising strikeouts and increased playoff entrants. We live in a specialized world, and with every resource and moment devoted to improving their primary function, pitchers don’t have the time or the energy—or even the specific training regimen—to improve their hitting. Someday their collective true average will spiral toward its natural asymptote of zero, and the traditionalists will face the difficult decision to rescind their privileges. In the meantime, National League baseball will remain a chess match, one where both players give each other knight odds.

Fans may still adore seeing pitchers hit for themselves, but NL managers have a different idea entirely. They aren’t taking the bat out of their hands, just their ability to swing it. Consider the following graph (and ignore the final inconvenient point, which we’ll return to):
