Fresh on the heels of my award-winning 2008 Royals O-Swing Percentage Graph, here is a graph the O-Swing (percentage of pitches swung at outside of the strike zone) for all the teams of the AL Central from 2005-2008 by year, also compared to the MLB average. Remember -- this is for hitters, so lower is better. (Maybe I [or someone else, of course] will do something like this for pitchers next week). The results speak for themselvs, I guess, but they are saying all sorts of things. Discuss and enjoy! For a larger version, click here (opens in new tab/window). Consider this a humble appendix to the "Secrets of the AL Central" series. All data via FanGraphs, of course.
