Notes and Numbers: August 15

Postby Arlo » Mon Aug 15, 2005 5:57 pm

It's time for another Cafe premiere! David Marver joins the ranks of Cafe authors with an excellent collection of Notes and Numbers. From a discrepancy between fielding win shares and fielding percentage to a connection between pitches per plate appearance and wins, there are some great observations here.

Don't miss this one! ;-D

Nice Article Marver......


Power Outage
The Colorado Rockies have had a 25-HR player every season of the franchise’s existence. Right now, the Rockies’ top two active sluggers combine for 25 homeruns (Dustan Mohr 13, Todd Helton 12).



One of the best Numbers IMO

I also liked that one. Truly amazing... 8-o

The note on pitches per PA intrigues me, too. Makes you want to go and check whether there are long-term correlations between that figure and, say, WHIP.

Very interesting. Some great stuff there.

Omar Vizquel currently ranks 20th this season in fielding win shares among major league shortstops. The problem: he ranks first in fielding percentage among major league shortstops. What to believe?


Except this one isn't really a conflict of opinion because FP% is just a measure of successful plays on balls reached while fielding win shares takes into consideration a wide range of factors, such as fielding range.

Anyway, I enjoyed the read. ;-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

True, but a quick glance makes you think Vizquel is a great fielder at his age, when the other shows that he doesn't necessarily make many important plays or have the range of the #1 fielding SS.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome and thanks to the Cafe Staff for allowing me to write for the cafe. ;-D
