Interesting tidbits on Carlos Zambrano

Postby CubsFan7724 » Fri Jul 30, 2004 6:30 pm

Just found some interesting stats.
Carlos Zambrano at day time
12 starts, 9-2, 1 CG, 1 SHO, 2.6 K/BB ratio, 1.58 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, .188 BAA
At night
8 starts, 1-4, no CG or SHO, 1.7 K/BB ratio, 4.80 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, .271 BAA
Wow. Thats a pretty big difference. He has also expressed that he likes playing day game much more than night games. I think that this is something that will probably come with age. Hes already a stud during the day, and I think hes bound to get better at night. Also, he got into trouble early yesterday but did not break down and struck out the side after having men on 1st and 3rd with no outs in the first inning. Bounced back to have an 8 inning no run performance. Good sign if you ask me. But start him every day game, and only play good matchups at night until he improves at that time.

Interesting find, I am not a Zambrano owner but if I was I think that I would put this info to use. I never knew that the time of day a game is played was relevant in deciding on starting a pitcher or not.

I found it very odd also. Usually its easier to hit in the daytime, but hes a groundball pitcher so balls don't get the opprotunity to carry as much.

I'm not sure the sample size is large to make and relavent conclusions. Did Zambrano have this type of split last season?

2003
Day ERA- 2.79
Night ERA-3.60
Day WHIP- 1.35
Night WHIP-1.27
Day BAA- .242
Night BAA- .234
Last year he was better at night. This is very odd circumstances. So it may just be an attribute to him just being young.
