Royals’ Bannister unafraid to do the math
By Jeff Passan, Yahoo! Sports Mar 8, 2:48 pm EST

The sabermetric community, baseball’s cottage industry of thinkers and rapscallions, has been waiting 30 years for a player like Brian Bannister to come along. He understands them. He thinks like they think. He doesn’t look at baseball as a simple game, just bat and ball or pitcher against hitter, primal to the core.
“I joke about it, but it’s almost like I’m watching the game from the Matrix,” Bannister said. “You’re not seeing what everybody else sees. You’re seeing the numbers that create it.”

Also had a neat link to the 'pitch f/x tool'
