I just posted, on my website, the RPA screen shots from my software for every MLB hitter in 2014 with at least 200 computed plate appearances. These screen shots contain the data and RPA ratings against each of the 6 types of pitchers faced. You will need an adequate sized screen to see the detail.

My score was…disappointing.
Jeff Sullivan also tries to talk Yankees fans off the ledge.
I did pretty well last year, although Travis Ishikawa didn’t end up getting the Pirates’ job and that hurt.
CJ Nitkowski explains why Tanaka’s drop in fastball velocity isn’t a problem.
These new guys did O.K. yesterday.
Bismarck Daily Tribune, April 7, 1915:
The fans love him. They really love him.
Doug Melvin doesn’t know how long he wants to keep his job.
What’s the opposite of penultimate? As in, like, second to first…. well, that’s whatever this day is to most teams.
