Hermanson's Bizarre Stats

Postby strats36 » Wed Aug 04, 2004 10:55 am

I am trying to decide between Wickman and Hermanson and discovered some weird stats. I was looking at pitch counts 1-15 and 16-30. The most important for a closer.

Hermanson's pitch count 1-15 stats:

14.1 IP, 13 K, 2 BB, 1 HR, .91 WHIP. Nice. ;-D

Hold on a minute though, 13 R, 8.16 ERA!! :-o Where did those runs come from with that WHIP, BB/K, K/9 and only one HR??

Pitch count 16-30 is not that unusual.

15 IP, 13 K, 3 BB, 1 HR, 1.53 WHIP, and 4.80 ERA. Still a nice BB/K and K/9 though.

Anyone have idea why his ERA is so high with such a low WHIP?


Oh yeah, Wickman's stats:

1-15: 6 IP, 7 K, 2 BB, 0 HR 0.00 ERA ;-D 1.83 WHIP :-t
16-30: 3 IP, 2K, 2 BB, 0 HR, 12.00 ERA, 2.00 WHIP :-t

P.S. In 18 starts, Hermanson has allowed runs in the first inning only twice. Good sign?

Maybe he puts the runs on base in 1-15 and lets them score in 16-30. :-b

Not to say you're wrong, but those R/ERA numbers seem way wrong. If you do the math, he must have allowed 11 hits and 2 BB to get that WHIP. That means that all 13 baserunners he allowed scored.

That seems really fishy to me.

I am looking on CBS now, they have Hermanson's first inning ERA as 2.50. Furthermore, in the first inning he has 16Ks in a total of 18 innings and a WHIP of 1.00.

He has only given up 5 runs in the first inning this season (all earned). So, there is no way that he can have an ERA of 8.16 through pitches 1-15.

Low WHIP high ERA usually means that a pitcher gives up hits in bunches. Its the same concept as a pitcher with a high WHIP and low ERA, they spread out the hits/walks not letting teams get real rallies going. Kind of scary to have a closer that gives up big innings.

Oh, well, it's not strats' fault. This is what Yahoo has in Hermanson's profile:
