→ Finding Koji Uehara’s Worst Pitch of the Playoffs

Jeff Sullivan of Fangraphs does an excellent job of figuring out what Koji’s worst pitch was during the playoffs. Of course, my favorite paragraph might be:

The next step is to eliminate any remaining pitches thrown to Jose Iglesias, because Iglesias is far from a threatening sort. The worst he’s likely to do is slap a single somewhere, and that’s just not that bad. You always have to account for batter identity. By removing pitches thrown to Iglesias, we reduce the sample to six.

Poor Jose.
