White Sox at Reds (7/2 - 7/4)

Page 7 of After splitting 2-2 with the division leader, I think that justified another start for me. Need the Reds to take care of business and keep things rolli... 110 comments | 22432 Views | Go to page 1 →

    When are facts not actually facts?

    Why do you think his HR and RBI numbers are where they are, 8 and 43? Last year at the All-star break he had 26 HRs and 68 RBIs, after the break he fell to 10 HRs and 32 RBIs. Are HRs down across baseball? Is he just not trying to hit HRs? I have no problem with Votto's overall numbers but I would like to see him be a little more aggressive in certain situations but maybe he takes the same approach regardless.

Since their last off day on June 18th here are the starters innings. 9 of 16 games they haven't gotten to the 6th.

    Romano 5.0, 5.0, 5.0 7.0
    DeSclafani 5.1, 6.1, 6.1
    Castillo 6.2, 4.0, 5.2
    Harvey 5.2 (rain delay), 6.2, 6.0
    Mahle 5.2, 5.0, 6.0
    Just looking at this, hasn’t the starters gotten into the 6th in 11 of 16? Or did you mean thru the 6th?

    Peraza has matched his walk total from last year already.

    I got to looking at this a little deeper and maybe this is common across baseball. I looked at all the division leaders and most of their starters aren't going much deeper, even the American league teams.

    Interesting stats:

    Cincinnati 15g starters innings 86.1
    Milwaukee 15g starters innings 85.1
    Atlanta 15g starters innings 79.2
    Arizona 15g starters innings 84.0
    Boston 15g starters innings 82.0
    Houston 15g starters innings 92.1
    Cleveland 15g starters innings 83.2

    Imo Peraza has made an amazing amount of improvement in his batting eye.

    Reds are 23rd out of 30 MLB teams in IP from starters. (10th out of 15 NL teams)

    NL average is 465 Reds have 454 IP.

    3th most IP out of 15 NL teams for Relivers.

    Where do you get this type of stat? I would be interested in looking at them.

    It's almost like he's getting better. I think some of us were a little quick to toss him aside. He's still only 24. I'd like to see his OBP up a little higher still, but I'm happy with the way he has played this year.

    You can switch the splits from starter to reliever and AL/NL/MLB.

    I totally agree. His last 30 days his OBP is .375 and for the season .322. Last year it was only .297 but in half a season in 2016 it was .352 with only 7 walks.

    Why did you not put AVG. on there? When the Reds gave him $25 millon, do you think they wanted a guy that got on base at a high rate or to hit 30 HR and drive in 100 RBI yearly. You are going to defend him no matter what. He should lead off and give about 12 million a year back.
