Clement vs. "Bad" teams (winning percentage below .500--Tampa Bay, Seattle, Cincinnati, and Pittsburgh). These 4 tams have combined for a 143-215 win-loss record (.399), 4.4 R/G, and a .735 OPS.

4 starts, 4-0, 1.24 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, 9.3 K/9, 1.6 BB/9, 6.0 K/BB.

Clement vs. "Average" teams (winning percentage near .500--Toronto, Oakland, Oakland, Philadelphia, and Toronto again). These teams, counting Toronto and Oakland twice have combined for a .508 winning percentage, 4.7 R/G, and a .745 OPS.

5 starts, 1-1, 5.17 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, 6.3 K/9, 3.7 BB/9, 1.7 K/BB.

Clement vs. "Good" teams (winning percentage of .520 and above--Yankees, Orioles, Orioles, Rangers, Braves, Yankees, Orioles, Cardinals, Rangers, Yankees). These teams have combined for a .552 winning percentage, 5.2 R/G, and a .796 OPS.

10 starts, 5-2, 5.16 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, 7.4 K/9, 3.3 BB/9, 2.2 K/BB.

Clement has dominated the bad teams and been less-than-stellar against the good teams. In 19 starts, he's faced the following teams:
Yankees--3 times
Orioles--3 times
Toronto--2 times
Oakland--2 times
Texas--2 times
All others-once each

For the season, he's had a tough schedule, with only 4 starts against the bottom-feeders. It'd be nice to see him get a few more starts against the Tampa Bays and Kansas City Royals of the league.

His next few starts:
@CHW (ack!)
@TB
vsKC
@MIN


nice analysis.

WOW. That's pretty alarming, especially for the playoffs when he'll only face the good teams.

It should be expected that he'd do better against the bad teams, but the difference is pretty huge.

That upcoming schedule looks like 2 great games and 2 bad ones based on what he's done thusfar.

Very nice analysis ;-D

That was a nice post but wouldn't most pitcher's numbers be worse against teams with a good record versus bad? :-?

With another Red Sox-Yankees game on TV, I decided to take a look at Tim Wakefield in the same way I looked at Clement's starts.

Wakefield vs. "Bad" teams (winning percentage significantly below .500--Tampa Bay, Tampa Bay, Seattle, Pittsburgh). These 4 teams (counting TB twice) have combined for a .387 winning percentage, 4.4 R/G, and a .726 OPS.

4 starts, 1-1, 2.77 ERA, 1.58 WHIP, 5.5 K/9, 4.2 BB/9, 1.3 K/BB.

Wakefield vs. "Average" teams (winning percentage near .500--Detroit, Oakland, Cubs, Phillies, Indians). These teams, have combined for a .507 winning percentage, 4.6 R/G, and a .754 OPS.

5 starts, 5-0, 2.31 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, 4.9 K/9, 3.1 BB/9, 1.6 K/BB.

Clement vs. "Good" teams (winning percentage of .520 and above--Yankees, Yankees, Texas, Atlanta, Yankees, Orioles, Cardinals, Rangers, Orioles). These teams have combined for a .553 winning percentage, 5.2 R/G, and a .794 OPS.

9 starts, 2-6, 5.72 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, 5.7 K/9, 3.5 BB/9, 1.6 K/BB.

Similar to Clement, Wakefield has only had 4 "cake" starts and he's pitched well in them (2.77 ERA) but only has a 1-1 record to show for it.

In 5 starts against the mid-range teams, he's done his best work (5-0, 2.31 ERA, 1.14 WHIP). And against the good teams, he's been pasted (2-6, 5.72 ERA, 1.43 WHIP).
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.'
