He is walking 11 % of the time.
So he's striking out negative 3% of the time?
i didnt know you couldn't make contact, and still end the AB with a walk..
You can make contact and end with an out, but at least you make contact. You can make contact on a foul tip, pop out, etc. On the next pitch you can get a walk.
These are mutually exclusive, you don't need to add them.....is this really a complicated thing?
Wow, talk about a buzz kill. Can't a guy make a little math joke and not get crucified these days?
Anyhoo, I have to ask, what the crap are you talking about? I thought I knew what contact rate was, but you've definitely confused me. What does "...on the next pitch you can get a walk..." mean? It almost seems like you're saying contact rate is based on each pitch, not each at bat... care to explain?
