Weren’t we just here?
Hibernation Mode, illustrated… I don’t know if that’s a normal distribution or not. I would guess not. The Braves are worse in high-leverage situations than in medium-leverage, which probably is normal, since the best pitchers pitch more in high-leverage situations. But I’m guessing that it’s not normal to be worse, far worse, in low-leverage situations (when the Klinger Parrs of the world pitch) than in high-leverage situations. Last year, they were basically the same in all three situations, a little better in low-leverage.
A lot of this is probably just the Braves hitting much better in the early innings. Maybe they need a nap during the game or something. A nap would explain Anderson’s defense… BTW, I keep going back and forth, but I think his nickname should be ACHE, which stands for Anderson, Cleanup Hitter Extraordinaire.
