Baseball Prospectus | Under The Knife: Further Consideration
There are a few things that came out after Randy Johnson's first start back. First, Johnson had only minimal swelling in his knee after the start. That's a very good sign. Second, he had exceptional command, getting more than 70% of his pitches through the strike zone. Next, a good Tivo-enabled look at his delivery showed that his soft landing took some of his velocity. According to Tom House's book, The Pitching Edge, a stable front base is a must for transferring energy and thereby velocity. As Junior Spivey and Danny Bautista return from the DL after significant time out, some of the younger players that have kept the Diamondbacks in the divisional race will get squeezed out of the roster, and sent back to Tucson. There's no team in recent memory that went so far from the intended roster construction only to return to it later in the season, so I don't have a good point of comparison. Larry Walker and the Rockies are debating a trip to the DL after tests on his hip were inconclusive. A hernia still hasn't been ruled out, and he was certainly moving gingerly last week in Pac Bell (Granted, so was Barry Bonds). There's confusing noise coming from Colorado on this one, so it seems like the trip to the DL would solve Clint Hurdle's roster challenges and give Walker a chance to heal himself up from whatever it is that's ailing him. - Keywords:
the basketball distribution: Using the Four Factors (and Pace and FT%) to Estimate Point Margin/Efficiency Margin!
The 'Four Factors' are the keys to success in winning a basketball game. They are, generally put, how often you make your baskets, how often you get offensive rebounds, how often you get to the free throw line, and how often you turn the ball over (similarly, how often you let your opponents do the same things).
