Chad Bradford Must've Hit Lady Luck in the Head with a Piano

Chad Bradford has faced 36 batters.
30 of them have put a ball into play.
20 of those balls in play have been classified as groundballs.
52% of those grounders have turned into hits.

Bradford's overall BABIP is .540, but despite such, his tRA is 2.19 and FIP is 1.29. Let this be a lesson in how deceiving BAA (Bradford's is .444) really is. One glance at that figure and you would think Bradford is throwing watermelons*, instead he's been remarkably unlucky. It might be the oddest line of the year in the majors.



*I would argue throwing a watermelon and making it over the plate is far more impressive than throwing a baseball, but I digress.
