I clicked on the Baseball-Reference link in the Brady Singer thread to the complete list of "highest strikes looking percentage" and the first thing that comes up is a list of Team Pitching Pitches. I sorted that list by highest strikes looking and who should appear at the top but the Houston Astros?

Clearly, opposing batters are unsure of themselves when they face the 'Stros.

And when they face the Nationals (who rank at the bottom) they go up thinking they better swing at the first strike they see, because it's going to be a fastball.

To be honest, I don't know what this stat tells us. But there is a fairly big difference top to bottom.

Astros: 30.1%

Nationals: 23.7%
