    Fewer pitch classifications are just worse analysis. We may as well call everything either a fastball or a change if we want to misdiagnose pitches. Slurve is a derogatory term generally speaking, which is why pitchers don’t use it often. Guys that can’t throw a 12-6 CB or a 2-8 slider don’t have a choice in what they are going to throw – something in between, that I would call sloppy. If everyone could, they would throw two distinct pitches – slurves are for the rest of them. It also makes sense that computers would have a hard time defining the difference in break from a slider and a curve – which is the real reason this conversation exists. Machines should never be driving this conversation, but they are because pitchFX says nothing is a slurve.
