Pitching Inside: The Best of 2012 | FanGraphs Baseball

An interesting look into the batter/pitcher battle.

As for the truism about pitching inside, the correlation between Runs/100 and ERA- last year for pitchers who threw at least 50 innings was .52. Essentially, 27% of the variance in ERA- could be explained by how good a pitcher was on the inner-quarter of the plate. There’s certainly more work to be done here, for sure.
