It would be interesting to see Lincecum's stats with Posey as his catcher as opposed to any other catcher. Seems like Lincecum performs better when the catcher isn't Posey.
Is there a place where I can find this type of data?
Bring back Whiteside!
whiteside and lincecum combined for a 4.78 era...chris stewart was his favorite catcher..a 2.37...sanchez and lincecum = 5.78
posey was at a 2.80-3.00 area with him prior to this year...but lincecum has given up a ton of runs in just 80 innings so far so its inflated their combined era to 3.78
Catcher "ERA" has been studied time and time again. Really, there is no reason to believe one catcher will work better with any one pitcher.
If you have small ample sizes it can look like that for a time. But, for example, was Benji so great because Lincecum was so good with him and not Posey? Or is Lincecum simply not the same pitcher he is today that he was in 08 and 09.. I think most people would say he's just not the same pitcher.
"...Bring back Whiteside!...
Mrs. Whiteside, is that you?
""If every catcher called games indentically, then that statement would be correct. That's not the case though.""
Well I don't know what indentically is, so you have me there.
Thanks, but you said " indentically"
As per @CSNBaggs: Whiteside, not Posey, catches Timmy.
Wierd how Lincecum can't seem to synch things up with some catchers. At least I'm assuming this is the case since Sanchez and Whiteside have been the chosen catchers over Posey.
