Know your Rays: swinging at the fastball (Wednesday)

Who's behind the mask? - Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

A very fun game.

Your new favorite pass-time continues. And here's the exciting continuation of the game started yesterday, where I show you a graph, chart, or statistic, and you identify what Ray it represents.

You can see and vote on the answer to the previous "Swinging at the Fastball" puzzles here:

Monday

Tuesday

As with all of this week's puzzles, I've given you a graph from Jeff Zimmerman's Baseball Heat Maps, and you need to determine who's swing tendencies are being depicted.The two charts below show how often a Rays player swung at a fastball in different locations of the strike zone. They include all pitches classified by MLBAAM as FA, FF, and FT from 2007 through the present, and compare the player to league average. Green means that the player swung at a pitch in that location about as often as the league as a whole did. Blue and purple means that the player swung less often at a pitch in that location. Yellow and red means he swung more often.

Give your answer in the comments, and next Monday I'll reveal the answers for the whole week, and tally up a winner.
