View Full Version : Interesting discussion on HBP trend

The Hardball Times has an interesting article (http://www.hardballtimes.com/main/article/the-hbp-explosion-that-almost-nobody-seems-to-have-noticed/) today on how often batters are hit by the pitch. Most of their explanations/suggestions seem plausible, though they leave a lot of room for debate.

I don't know... seems pretty obvious to me, and not sure what they mean "no one seems to have noticed."

Everyone talks about the crazy equiptment everyone wears and how they step into pitches, don't get out of the way, etc. etc.
