Discussion of the 2018 World Series

We begin the 2018 Dodgers-Red Sox World Series discussion with Game 1 and HP Umpire Tim Timmons.

Chief Ted Barrett's Fall Classic entire crew/roster, including home plate probables, is available at the following link.

Home plate umpire performance is listed following the completion of each contest according to UEFL-f/x, which accounts for UEFL Rules 6-2-b-a (horizontal bound, "Kulpa Rule") and 6-2-b-b (vertical strike zone, "Miller Rule"). Callable pitches (which excludes all swinging strikes, fair and foul balls, HBPs, and pitchouts) are organized by type: "ball" or "called strike." These two figures are added together upon which a final plate performance score is achieved. For more information on UEFL-f/x and why we don't use misleading pitch plots/graphics in our analysis ("pfx" link included for illustrative purposes only), visit the following link.
