Bedtime for Bonser

Well, after that nice game where he got shelled in the first and then buckled down, Boof came out and did some garden-variety sucking tonight. How did he approach each batter? Here’s a plot, fresh and hot out the pitchf/x kitchen. Different at bats are color-coded, and the pitch result is marked by the symbol. Click to enlarge:

What immediately jumps out at me is:

  1. Boof didn’t want anything to do with David Ortiz. And sure enough, he threw him one hittable pitch, and Ortiz hit it.
  2. In three at bats, Mike Lowell didn’t see a single pitch on the inner two-thirds of the plate! Pretty cool.
