HR's by Jose Guillen

Postby RynMan » Thu Jun 23, 2005 11:54 pm

I'm not taking credit for this stat - the guys on the Fantasy 411 brought it up (great show).

Jose Guillen

HR Away - 14
HR Home - 1

Jus found that very interesting!

One more note is that he has CRUSHED right handed pitching so far, and not so much for lefties. His whole career he has hit about even against both.

Maybe it's because his Home fans know what a butt-head he is and they get on him every game and therefore he doesn't perform at home :-b

The Nationals have only hit 22 HR's at home all year and 56 overall, third worst in the majors.

Shows you how tough on hitters their new ball park is and that's hurt the fantasy value of guys like Wilkerson and Castilla and to a lesser extent Guillen.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

According to ESPN.com Park Factors, RFK is the 3rd-lowest-scoring park as far as Runs are concerned and the toughest park to hit a HR in (.575 park factor for HR).

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/stats/par ... t=HRFactor

Brad Wilkerson is another guy who's been hurt by the ballpark:
Home--.231/.375/.356, .731 OPS (1 HR, 6 RBI in 128 PA)
Away--.306/.377/.517, .894 OPS (3 HR, 22 RBI in 165 PA)
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'

wow. wilkerson's struggles had confused me quite a bit. those are nice splits. perhaps i'll start playing him for his away games only. (what an odd thing to have to do....)

That's why Livan Hernandez, John Patterson, Luis Ayala, and Chad Cordero have such great numbers.
[b]Bold Predictions:[/b]

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

well, chad cordero has good numbers because he's got great ability. you don't K 1 per inning because the field is spacious. ;-D incidently, his ERA is actually 1.00 lower on the road than at home. 8-o

'course, the Nat's team ERA is about 2.20 lower at home than on the road, so yeah, there's probably some park effect going on there. :-b

What's most annoying of all is that no one's getting on base in front of him for these bombs. Only 41 RBI with 15 HR? Solid, but I'd expect more RBIs. He may end up like Wilkerson last year, with his 30+ HR and 60-something RBI. It's a waste almost.
