If you're basing that on your view of Gameday, then you've likely been misled. Gameday does not track each and every pitch during spring training; it only covers results. As a result, every strikeout looks like a 3-pitch strikeout; every walk looks like a 4-pitch walk; and every batted ball in play looks as if the batter swung on the first pitch.


Not true. If you switch the option right under the Gameday screen with the silhouette of the batter from the default "Play-by-play" setting to "Pitch by pitch", it tracks every pitches and correctly identifies the pitch location and strikes/balls (granted, given that it is Spring Training, it does tend to lag and isn't always particularly timely and sharp, but it's there nonetheless). Likewise you can click on the archived AB after it takes place and it will show the pitches, i.e. click on "McCutchen lines out to left fielder" and it will show the pitches in the AB.



I had the At Bat app open on my phone and it appeared to work the way Willton described it.

So, Tabata keeps on hitting while Snider keeps on K'ing. Three weeks of camp left, its getting interesting.


He K'ed a couple times today, but Snider is still having the best spring of any Pirates regular after Tabata. I look at it more like they are both performing well rather than Tabata looking that much better.

He has K'd 8 times in 16 atbats, that ain't good. Given its ST and it barely matters, but Tabata is making his case in a battle that will be settled in the regular season.

I take it back, they probably are looking at 1 spot. The Sox also have Sweeney and Overbay in camp, Drew Sutton too. Not sure why they think our sucktastic bench castoffs are a good idea.

They were 69-93 last year. Pirate castoffs are an improvement for them.

That had to be fun to type, this year it will be the Yankees. If Cano is really on his way to a suspension they are in big trouble without Tex, Grandy, and Arod already in that tough division.

This could be Toronto's year. I'm looking forward to watching the Yankees struggle.

We're all looking forward to watching the Yankees' expected travails.

This had better be Toronto's year after the moves that they just made!

You can't imagine how much fun it was to type that :D

The Yankees have taken on a tough job, trying to reduce payroll on a team full of old players. They're going to need to step it up in the draft department if they're going to stay in contention.

The Yankees have actually been pretty good at drafting. Their problem has been that they rarely keep their draft prospects, and lately the one's that they do keep have not lived up to their promise (e.g., Phil Hughes).
