Cardinals Plate Discipline

fourstick wanted to see these since I had them at Cubs f/x for your mortal enemy's roster.   I had reports handy since I've been creating previews for some of the Cubs/Cardinals games, including this weekend's in St. Louis.  So, here are your St. Louis Cardinals (or at least the roster last week).

Metrics include swing rate (Swing; swings/pitches) chase rate (Chase; swing rate on pitches out of the zone using a 24" plate) watch rate (Watch: takes in the zone, inverted swing rate to compare with Chase) and, as a throw-in, nkSLG (totabl bases divided by balls in play, includes home runs).

Here are the graphs - full database baseline, Cardinals' team "baseline", career line and individuals by season (PITCHf/x data only, only goes back to 2006 playoffs, scarcely).  I'll let you create your own commentary.
