Striking out pitchers...who keeps this stat?

Postby Y`s Guy » Sun Mar 04, 2007 2:58 pm

Man, I was just thinking...wouldn't it be great to see an NL pitchers strikeout numbers after taking away the pitchers he made look foolish?

Imagine Ben Sheets with 200 Ks, but 80 were pitchers. Sure, a K is a K but I would find it interesting to see what pitchers have the best K% v. real batters and who has the worst v. pitchers.

Perhaps numbers like this could help analyze the SPs who jump to the AL. If 45% of Carlos Zambrano's strikeouts are pitchers wouldn't it lower his ranking if he went to the AL? Sure!

Is there a site that shows how many of a guy's Ks were pitchers?

Go to MLB stats for pitchers in ESPN.

It's under filter options, Batting #9. This should do it for you.

Even still though it wont change alot, sometimes you only face a pitcher 2 or 3 times in a single game anyways and if one of those times they bunt or something. I dont see how this would have much of a effect on the game.

That will still include at bats from pinch hitters and double switches.

Wow...I guess that's what I was looking for.

ESPN > MLB > Stats > 2006 >

Type: Regular
Filter Options: Batting #9

four comparable stat SPs from 2006...

Andy Pettitte struck out 32 #9 hole guys in 214.1 IP. That's 32/178 for a .179%

Jason Schmidt Ked 180 in 213.1 IP. 26 of those Ks were that #9 batter for a .144%

In the AL:

Jeremy Bonderman went 214 IP with 202 Ks. John Lackey went 217.2 and Ked 190. Each whiffed only 16 of the batters batting 9th.

Bonderman 16/202 = .079%
Lackey = 16/190 = .084%

Okaaay, I have some research to do...

Again...this is a new analytical angle. Nothing earth-shaking but I will monitor Pettitte and others who jumped to the AL and give updates.
