View Full Version : Pitches Per Plate Appearance

I googled but came up empty. Does anyone know a place to find a ranking for the White Sox P/PA? I noticed yesterday against Santana they took a lot of pitches out of his arm early.

This is one thing so far I really like about Erstad, he's been a pest at the plate. I was looking up individual White Sox players and found Dye, Thome, Podsednik, all have great P/PA avg's. Erstad and Iguchi have pretty good #'s too.

Yesterday Santana was in the 50's in the 3rd inning. Anyone know if we have the best P/PA in the league? If so how valuable do you think that is? That could bode very well come playoffs and in games like yesterday when we face a top arm in the league IMO.

Thanks guys. I was hoping for a team by team ranking from last season on one of these sites, but I've checked a lot of them and can't find them. If I get desperate later, I'll just get every team individually. I'm just curious how good this team was last season at drawing pitches, and wanted to see what Erstad could add this season to that number.
