Most interesting stat of the year to you?

Postby AquaMan2342 » Wed May 14, 2008 12:41 pm

I read today that Matt Cain is 21-6 in games where SF scores three or more runs. Unbelievable.

I read that one this morning and agree it's the most interesting stat I've seen so far......especially as I own Cain.

i owned cain last year and was well aware of this fact. i was at fenway for his duel with dicek, the only run he allowed was a solo shot to manny. he took the loss cause the giants failed to score a single run. discussed cains poor luck afterward with a giants fan on the T, the poor guy

anyone have the league wide data for records of pitchers who get 3+ runs in support?

Cliff Lee coming out of nowhere to have a 0.67 ERA is the one that stands out the most to me.

Second would be Edinson Volquez's 1.12 ERA after watching him struggle and stink here in Texas for awhile (career ERA is 4.91 and that is up to the minute, including this season's numbers).

I suppose Chipper being at 0.415 BA over six weeks into the season is quite surprising. Plus the fact he's only missed one game. :-)

Batting average against: .212; OPS: .576; Babip .226.



Brian Bannister by night (career)
– 8-13, 4.58 ERA, 165 ip; 168 hits, 88 runs, 84 er, 20 homers, 55 walks, 87 Ks.

Tony Pena Jr is on pace to break the record for worst offensive season in the modern era of baseball. He is looking to shatter the lowest OPS for a shortstop by over 70 points and his 7 OPS+ (that is right, 7 on a scale where 100 is average) is 23 points lower than the lowest OPS+ for a regular position player.

The NL average pitcher has a line of .150/.189/.194/.383
Tony Pena Jr has a line of .165/.179/.214/.393
