20) Scouting reports on Chone Figgins stink.
Only David Eckstein, Luis Castillo, Jason Kendall and Denard Span see a higher percentage of fastballs than Figgins’ 69.5 percent. Difference is, they can’t hit them. Figgins is 14.5 runs above average against fastballs.
22) Kendry Morales learned to hit a curveball sometime in the last year.
Morales, in limited playing time last year, was 7.84 runs below average per 100 curves seen. This year: 5.13 above per 100, the best in baseball.
25) Six players in baseball do not have a weakness on a specific pitch.
Torii Hunter just makes it, one-one hundredth a run in the black on curveballs, and his center field peer Adam Jones joins him.
