The following images have been prepared as evidence neither for nor against the dismissal of Rays Batting Coach Derek Shelton. The author does not have a dog in the fight other than maintaining intellectual honesty whenever and wherever possible. Dan Szymborski was nice enough to give me his projections from 2004 through 2014, which I will be comparing with actual wOBA figures as calculated by Fangraphs. The far right section of the table shows the percentage difference between projected wOBA and actual wOBA. The population is comprised of all Rays batters to get at least 100 PA in a given season from 2010 – 14, which the discerning reader will notice is essentially the Derek Shelton Era.
All questions or requests for clarification will be ignored. Consider this the author signing off with no further comment.
Good luck out there, chaps.
