I know runs and rbis are considered a team stat, but on a team so bad at offense its not like anybody is really benefitting from being on this team. But here is a list of the guys on this team who have had at least 150 PAs and their percentage of runs created (runs plus rbis minus HRs) per PA
Castro 73/349 = 20.92%Soriano 61/305 = 20.00%LaHair 48/251 = 19.12%DeJesus 57/303 = 18.81%Barney 55/300 = 18.33%Campana 25/166 = 15.06%Stewart 28/202 = 13.86%
So.....my guy Castro has had a bigger effect on the scoreboard than anybody else in the lineup, including LaHair and his 900 ops. Not bad for a guy many on here do nothing but complain about
only way ops is meaningless is if obp and slg are both meaningless
But in order to create runs you need to have some RISP thrown in the mix too. Something LaHair has had none of
Actually in your scenario, Castro's overall lead increased.
I dont care which way you do it, because either way my guy is on top.
Yeah, I've noticed. Someone must have gotten in Castro's ear because the last 10 days or so he has taken more walks
Of course his batting average has fallen about 15 points in that time too. I think I like the aggressive Castro better
Thats why I did it as a percentage. Obviously Castro will have more risp chances, because he doesnt sit against pitchers he cant hit
Now why dont you post what castro and lahair did with those chances?
My "system" isnt supposed to replace scouting guides. It just shows who has contributed to putting up runs on the scoreboard the most. And that guy is Starlin Castro. Which didnt really surprise me too much
In fact it should surpise nobody that castro, sori, and lahair are the top 3, and Campana and stewart are the bottom two
Because he's batted 2nd and 3rd ...of course he'll be towards the top.
Why are you being hypocritical to your pal OPS ?
Not sure what formula you are using, but it doesn't seem that useful
According to baseball-reference.com
Castro this year has 41 runs created and is at 4.3 runs created per game
LaHair has 43 runs created and is at 7 runs created per game.
