Team VMIs and ADIs for Opening Day

Posted: 2019-03-27 09:57:08 (ET)    [ 630 views ]

Detailed Match-ups will be the off-season default until about 10:30 a.m. Eastern time - check back then.  Tomorrow's temps and therefore the ADI's will be changed by about 11:00 a.m. Eastern, as well.  

We had a little glitch in the automated portion of our weather gathering for tomorrow.  We entered the numbers by hand this morning and intend to get the automated glitch fixed for Friday.  

We will be watching this closely for accuracy in the early part of the season.  Be sure to check back on game day to see if the numbers have changed.  

If you see something that doesn't look right, please drop me a note through our contact information or directly to me if you have been a regular correspondent.  

As a reminder:  There are quite a few higher than normal minus VMI's for tomorrow's games.  This, of course is because all the Phoenix spring training teams are traveling to lower altitudes and colder temperatures than Phoenix.  The Grapefruit League teams are traveling to colder temperatures so both transitions will cause more movement than spring training afforded.  What does that mean?  Keep in mind that a minus 7 VMI means that the 4-seamer will be lifting one inch more than the hitters are used to seeing, a minus 2 VMI means about 1/4 inch more lift, and a Plus 4 VMI means the hitters will see about 1/2 inch less movement on that pitch in the opener.  

What you may notice in the stats tomorrow is that the 4-seamer will be the more effective pitch where the VMI is minus, but the other pitches will most likely be vulnerable to more hits, as they will not be good pitch-mix options for tomorrow's pitchers.
