Hey all. So this is the start of a weekly post in which I’ll create a graphic, imaginatively titled Weekly Graphic. I want it to be a way of summarizing data into an easy-to-interpret picture—something more detailed than a basic chart but less complicated and trendy than a full-out infographic.
Anyway, with the season set to start in mere weeks, I looked at what kind of production we can historically expect from those who will be playing on opening day. Curiously, Utley is the only batter who has played better in April over the course of his career.
