I missed getting this question in at the buzzer of your BtBS chat. What types of analyses are being done on impact of pitch combo flight trajectories, eg FT/CH, and their effectiveness? I remember seeing an article about the impact of the flight plane difference between CU and FA and how that impacts a CU creating a "hump" the batter can see.
I've done a couple things like that, showing a slider/fastball combo that start on the same plane. I think the spin axis/flight plane are critical aspects in deception, it's certainly a huge opportunity for researchers.
