Introducing the Paintomatic

Here’s a visualization of the Red Sox starting rotation (using 2009 stats).  The size of the circle represents how often the pitch is thrown, and the color indicates how effective the pitch was.  Pitch abbreviations are FB (fastball), CT (cutter), CB (curveball), CH (changeup), and XX (where you’ll find Wakefield’s knuckleball and Bucholz’s and Lackey’s sliders).
