Awesome thanks. I do look at K% and GB% quite a bit when evaluating pitchers.

Parra but I was targeting him anyway. Also Jurrjens.

Doubtful. The article is from yesterday and today.

I was surprised at just how awful Percival is on these metrics.
Ubaldo Jiminez would be a legend outside of Coors - and even maybe inside Coors if he can cut down on walks.
Matt Garza's inclusion on the bottom left quadrant is as odd to me as Doug Davis' in the top right.
The northeast quadrant is filled with amazing relievers.

This article is graphing the results of the 2008 season.

Regardless. No worries. Lederer may not be the only one doing this, but he did it first, and does it most comprehensive.

It's a great site to keep on your bookmarks.
