[10/1/2013] Hanshin Tigers: A visual look at Randy Messenger’s Starts

by on Oct.01, 2013 @ 10:34 am, under NPB

I was thinking of a different ways to display data that could potentially make it easier to see more at a glance.  I remembered seeing a visual graphic like this a few years back for offensive numbers.  I can't for the life of me recall where I saw the image, but this attempt was sort inspired by that.

It isn't perfect.  I'm not really happy with the layout.  There's also more information I'd like to squeeze in that could make the chart even better, like a simple bar that shows strikes and balls, or some sort of graphical representation to show innings pitched.

If any of you have suggestions, or comments, feel free to leave them down below.  As with the Balentien infographic, feel free to use this image if you like, but please provide a link back to this page (if possible) since there is a good chance I'll be making updates to it.

Forgot to provide a key:

White Box = Victory
Black Box = Loss
Grey Box = Tie
Star in Upper Left Corner = Complete Game
Red = Runs allowed by Messenger
Blue = Runs scored while Messenger was pitching
Red on Left = Home Start
Blue on Left = Road Start
