Dave Hall (aka Guru) announced in yesterday’s Daily Blurb (linked in the blogroll) that he has developed a new tool for upcoming batter/pitcher matchups.
If you like to look at pitcher-vs.-batter stats, I built a simple tool that looks up all of a given day’s matchups and spits them onto a single page. You just need to supply the date as the last three characters of the URL. Here’s an example for Sunday, July 13: http://rotoguru1.com/cgi-bin/dailyhit.pl?date=713. The format isn’t fancy, but it sure beats punching in a bunch of different links. The data is extracted from ESPN.com, so it’s based on their projected starters. You can click on any hitter link from the output page to see more ESPN detail for that hitter, or click on a column link to see corresponding pitcher detail.
Making this information easily retrievable is simply invaluable when deploying any type of strategy that involves rotating starting pitchers on and off your roster. Thanks, Guru.
