Umpires

Over at THT, I took a look at how much individual pitchers are affected by umpire errors in calling balls and strikes. I got a range of about 8 strikes per 100 pitches, which is HUGE. That means that randomly, two different pitchers could have an 8% difference in strike rate by chance alone! Here are some Cardinals pitchers this year, measured by "Gift Rate" which is the amount of "extra strikes" per 100 pitches: Carpenter: +0.8 Pineiro: +2.1 Lohse: +1.0 Motte: -1.6 Franklin: 1.5 Wellemeyer: -0.5 And if anyone wants to see anyone else, you can ask.
