Jesse:Care to talk Baseball Savant?
Jesse: I never see any subs in here discussing it or all of the awesome info it has, so figured a lot may benefit from it.
Jesse: I mean, obviously those 90ft running splits are vital to all of our models, but besides them…
TONS of stuff you can do there
but one real simple thing
is this page
Jesse: Exactly. Definitely the best tool.
DraftCheat: so you can sort by Barrels/PA
DraftCheat: shows you who is really smashing the ball and maybe getting unlucky. I like “Exit Velocity on FB/LD” as well
That’s a good one. I’ve never bothered to integrate it into anything I’ve made because I couldn’t determine the optimal way to do so.
How do you use it?
I don’t have it integrated, per say
but it’s a good barometer of who is squaring up
any love for Kikuchi tonight? wondering if I should eliminate him from my pool.
DraftCheat: i wouldn’t play kikuchi, we’re all in on Beede tonight
I’m assuming no Gray either if going with Beede?
DraftCheat: i like Gray some too, but bats are kinda tough tonight, I really want the savings
If I remember somewhere he was the Giants prospect who’s also a rapper lol.
DraftCheat: he’s a rapper?? shit. For that reason, I am out
DraftCheat: yeah i’m likely just rolling 100% beede lol, i don’t even think he’s gonna be owned either
thoughts on Gausman, dominated marlins (like everyone else does) in 1st start
DraftCheat: yeah i like Gausman
You think he will be good for seasonal too? Or not worth it with the guys coming back off the DL?
DraftCheat: He’s worth a flier for sure. Not many teams can really send down pitchers who perform these days. pretty much, you pitch good, you stay.
DraftCheat: Whit Merrifield has 5 steals in 27 PA against Boyd. whit/mondesi stack could be super sneaky.
Are we still worried about sale? I know he loves to crush the white Sox since the trade
DraftCheat: Sale’s velo cratering again, no idea what to think about him at this point
