Trend toward visual baseball data

This postseason, the baseball blogosphere (guh, I wince when I use that word but it fits here) has had a fascination with presenting data in a visual fashion.  It seems to be a trend to almost move away from traditional numbers tables and go to more eye-pleasing visual presentations.  The Hardball Times has a whole series of them during the 2010 postseason (a good example is their Paintomatic series).

But THT isn’t the only ones to incorporate this new brand of “visual baseball data”.  You can find examples of this at The Biz of Baseball and even Baseball Reference’s blog.
