But, to me, that strikeout to walk ratio is very unusual. That ratio has always been close to 1:1 in his career. I KNOW IT'S ONLY APRIL. But he has whiffed 15 times to 3 walks -- a 5:1 ratio. He hasn't hit a double in over 100 ABs. Call me for crazy for thinking that those are strange early patterns. And I was wondering what people thought about it. Instead, I get the generic "you are freaking out, shut the you know what up line". I find that lame. Engage in intelligent banter please and tell me why those patterns aren't anything to worry about. I don't like to disregard patterns just because I'm told I have to or else I'm freaking out. You understand. Thank you.
No I don't think people like the miner 2 do understand. I don't know why people take the time to post in a forum they don't want to read
I guess they just are here to be imbeciles.
Based on the data I have which goes to 2001, Vlade hasn't K'd 15 times in a month with such a poor OPS (for Vlade), you might want to look at who he's faced.
His career splits don't indicate a slow starter. It could have to do with random variation and/or less lineup protection and possibly in combination with age and injury recovery.
It's Vlade, hitting over .300 with 6 HR in a month. I wouldn't be worrying.
