Turning analytics into the buzz word for what you don't like about baseball is intentionally warping the definition to fit an agenda.
Launch angle, hard-hit percentage and exit velocity are nothing but measurements.
That's it. That's all.
Players have been interested in launching the baseball long before launch angle was measured.
It was just called something else: give it a ride, let it rip, whatever.
Yes, hitters should be better about adjusting to defenses. No debate there. But blaming analytics is trying to take it out on an independent tool. If a builder makes a wall and it fall down, he doesn't rush to blame his level. He realizes he did bad work with his tools. You're blaming the level.
