This interview with Russell Martin about pitch-framing is probably the best Pirates-related article I've read all year, and it's well worth its own discussion thread.
If you think of yourself as a student of the game at all, it's hard not to come away really impressed with Martin here. He sounds like he'll be a tremendous coach one day, if he wants to be.
Also, look at the Pitch F/X plot at the beginning of the article! Wow.
