MTro86's Bio

Matt has written for ReupSports in the past where he developed his unique pitching charts. He probably watches and reads more about baseball than any normal human being would find enjoyable, accumulating an incredible wealth of mostly useless knowledge, while he patiently waits for his jedi powers to manifest. In addition to writing the *Advanced Pitching Charts* column for RotoGrinders, MTro86 also heads up the premium "*MLB News Alerts*":https://rotogrinders.com/pages/lineup-email-alerts-mlb-252004 during baseball season.

    Haven't looked at pricing yet, but I'm certainly interested in Nimmo leading off at a reasonable cost against a pitcher with historic platoon and control problems. Latest weather report looks favorable Thursday afternoon as well. Read More

  • MLB, 3/29

    Framing metrics have been a bit volatile the last few years, leading some to re-question their worth. Some of it could be umpires getting better, some of it could be that more established pitchers with good reputations are just as important for getting cal... Read More

    Yeah, but what I meant is that you're looking for different things (team level vs individual matchups), although I guess there are enough player props these days where it could be the same. Either way, it depends on rake/vig. Read More
