Baseball Capping Tools

I was asked by a couple of people on Twitter what tools I use for capping bases and when looking on here I didn't find a thread with everything in one place.

I wanted to have a thread for everyone to contribute what websites and such they use on a daily basis to research.

http://mlb.mlb.com/stats/sortable.j...e=st&statType=hitting&page=1&ts=1460689011763


- www.baseball-reference.com for pitcher/ump, pitcher/ball park splits, and other pitcher splits. Most important aspect of making a wager for me. Cannot bet baseball without knowing this.

- www.dailybaseballdata.com for weather and stats vs specific pitchers

- www.baseballpress.com/bullpenusage for bullpen usage

- various sites/Twitter for roof statuses


please contribute if/when you have time.

For those into metrics; wrc+, xfip etc. As the sample sizes grow some easy search's can give you teams stats for LHP, RHP, Home, Away, for periods of time (7 days, 14 days, etc.) Ballpark tendencies by handedness and much much more!

Sample sizes still pretty small but just wanted to illustrate some of the bells and whistles of what you can get from the aforementioned site:

Take J. Ross today, he's #6 amongst SP throwing 33% Sliders. Delving in to his opponent, the Marlins today, we can look up that they are the team in all of MLB that have seen the most sliders to this point, 21%, and have had the 4th highest success rate against sliders posting a wSL of 3.4 (that's 3.4 runs above average against a pitch type, in this case the slider).

As mentioned, 1) still early, 2) efficacy of stats (these guys are pretty good about dotting their i's and crossing their t's, but I am sure they rely on a lot of 2nd hand info for these stats) 3) at what stage does the paralysis from analysis creep in when capping.

Still worth keeping mind open about any advantage we can get. This is just one example of the stuff you can pull easily from the site.

VC I asked this in your thread on today's game but I'll pose it here in case anyone can help. Is there a source where I can see a pitchers velo by inning per start?

Statcast savant is also good for numbers against a certain pitch and you can see whether a team is over- or underschieving against it by seeing ba vs xba and slg vs xslg

Anybody have a rather basic tracking sheet for plays? I could probably put something together, but I'm wouldn't mind just using one thats already been established. Nothing too crazy but just something simple in excel. Thanks.
