Colby 2009 v 2010

July 4, 2010

First off Happy 4th of July to all.  Hope you enjoy the time with friends and family (or whatever you choose to do).

I wanted to do a quick post investigating Colby’s success this year compared to last year at the plate.  I dug through the pitch f/x data and came up with a couple of observations.  First he’s hitting fastballs from RHers with much more authority this year (a 0.589 wOBAc compared to a 0.346 wOBAc in 2009).  Second he’s crushing the pitch middle in as shown in the following chart

I’d assume there’s a large overlap between the two points also (a lot of fastballs middle in being hit with power).

Those two points are the primary differences between the two seasons that I noticed.  There are other differences of course, but those appear minor compared to those I’ve highlighted.

UPDATE:  His HR’s for AZ

    I’d love to see a plot of his HRs. I’ve got a feeling you’ll see some fun golfball shots down and in.
