MLB Takeoff 8/31: Let's Go Streaking


Note: The Boogie Factor has officially been launched. I want to give you a better understanding about this metric. It's something that we've been working on since the end of 2019 season. It's a metric that takes every single factor into account. We are talking about EVERYTHING. Exit velocity, Average batted ball distance, weather, stadium, air density, expected wOBA, not only ISO, but expected weighted ISOs, K%, matchup, XwOBA, XFIP, Money Lines, Oddsmakers expectations, etc. There isn't one category that will be unaccounted for. The only * I would put for now, is give it time to soak in a larger 2020 sample and we should be seeing amazing results for the rest of the season.


**We're gearing up for our first 2020 podcast coming soon! (sorry for the delay, just waiting on a shipment to come in). We'll be collecting any questions you may have until then.

Primary Arms


S.Bieber: Running out of words to describe how good he has been to start the season. He's shattering all sorts of records every time he takes the mound, & is definitely the leader in the clubhouse for the Cy Young this season. Bieber has had 3 straight outings with double digit strikeouts (11,10,10) & it's bumped his K rate on the season to an INSANE 42.9%. Tonight he takes on the Royals who have the lowest IRT on the slate (2.9). Can't forget to mention Bieber leads the way in BF with a rating of 24.72.


G.Cole: He's turned up the heat in terms of his strikeout totals (10,8,10,9) over the last few games, but he's had trouble with the long ball all season long (FB 43.%, RISO .227, LISO. 313). Tonight he faces the Rays for the 3rd time in his last 5 starts, in his 2 starts against the Rays this season he struck out 10 of them each time out. There is a good chance Cole finds his groove in terms of putting together a high K game w/ no HRs because this Rays team only hits the ball in the air 30% of the
