Top 12 power hitters.......interesting numbers comparison

Postby NZF » Wed Aug 03, 2005 5:41 pm

The Top 12 hitters this season, taking into account a combination of HR, RBI's and Avg. would be in no particular order

A-Rod
Pujols
Vlad
Manny Ramirez
Tex
Ortiz
D.Lee
C.Lee
Sheffield
Matsui
Sexson
Aramis Ramirez

If you break their individual numbers down, every single hitter with the notable exception of one, hits better with runners in scoring position (RISP) and/or runners on base, than with the bases empty.



Bases empty Runners On RISP
A-Rod .339 .296 .276

Pujols .354 .328 .366

D.Lee .358 .362 .387

Manny .218 .333 .360

Ortiz .277 .326 .365

Vlad .297 .329 .314

Matsui .297 .312 .316

Sheffield .233 .384 .394

Sexson .215 .326 .330

C.Lee .249 .295 .328

A.Ramirez .278 .344 .278

Sorry if this is hard to read.



It looks like Manny and Sexson don't even start trying until they have someone to bat in.

Overall it appears the big bats crank it up a gear when they have men on, again with the notable exception of A-Rod.

I wonder what the point of this thread is ;-7

You've already made your attempt to bash Alex here talking about the exact same thing: http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... &start=165

This thread is nothing more than a further attempt on that note.

How about a better stat like OBP, which is more indicative of what players actually do in those situations? Or perhaps RISP w/ 2 outs? Or Late and Close numbers?

Oh wait, nevermind, those stats prove contrary to your Alex sucks mantra.

Sheffield is a pure beast; when asked why he hits better with runners on his response: "I concentrate more." Kind of an interesting thought there.

Maybe he got stuck behind blank in traffic one time. My grandma drives with her blinkers on sometimes and it drives people crazy...

No I meant blinkers.

From the Oxford concise dictionary.

Blinkers plural noun leather pieces fixed on a bridle to prevent a horse from seeing sideways.


The blinkers you are talking about on a car are called indicators ;-)
