I don't know, what he said about ground balls makes a little sense, but still, I look at that list from last year... the link that number9 sent. Webb, Westbrook, and Lowe are up on the top of the list. These are not pitchers I'd think of as great pitchers. I don't even think some of the great pitchers are on that list, which means they must have a bad G/F. But they are still great pitchers. Prior is below 1. A good pitcher can make it so that a hitter is unble to get a direct hit on the ball. This ball is less likely to go out of the park. G/F doesn't even consider pitchers who strikeout a lot of batters. Not sure I like that stat... but then, I don't have all that much experience with it. so what do I know?
