Rather than predicting batting average, for instance, this resource looks at the elements of skill that make up any given batters ability to distinguish between balls and strikes, his propensity to make contact with the ball, and what happens when he makes contactreverse engineering those skills back into batting average. The result is an unparalleled forecast of baseball abilities and trends for the upcoming season and beyond.
