PostPosted: Thu Jul 01, 2010 5:09 pm    Post subject: OPS since May 1 Reply with quote

The team was scoring a lot of runs in April, but since then, not so much.
Through April 30th 5.8 R/G, .818 OPS
May 1-July 1: 4.1 R/G, .723 OPS

Here are the OPS leaders on the team, min 75 PA's, since May 1

Upton .895
Young .790
Parra .753
Ryal .752
Reynolds .749
Laroche .742
Snyder .737
Johnson .723
Drew .698
Jackson .663

Remember when Kelly Johnson was our all star? good times.

Selective begin and end points, to be sure. Overall on the season our numbers are still pretty much close to league avg.....94 OPS+, vs. Nlg avg 95 OPS+. We've scored 20 runs more than Nlg. avg team, (458 vs. 438) but of course we play our home games in Chase.

One hot month and two cold months have added up to league avg.....but if I were to project the balance of the season, I'd project below league avg offense, as we've seen for the last two months.

At least we know we can fall back on the old reliable axiom.....as goes Mark Reynolds, so goes the D Backs offense. It's been that way since May of 2007, and it doesn't appear it will change any time soon.

MR woke up on May 2nd with a .991 OPS on .253/.376/.614, with a quite reasonable 28 K's in 101 PA's. He had 9 HR, 23 RBI, and 15 walks.

Since May 2nd: .193/.303/.403 .706 OPS 80 K's in 208 PA's 9 HR, 27 RBI

He will probably start a hot streak pretty soon....he usually does when I start beating up on him.

EDIT: In case anyone is wondering about the discrepency between MR's OPS since May 1 , (.749) and since May 2 (.706) it's because he had a two homer day on May 1. Like I said, selective begin and end points. Razz

Even though it made me die a little inside, good read.

Can we make one big thread called "Shoewizard's Reasons On Why The Diamondbacks Suck"?

When Parra is your third best player you've got issues.

Upton gives us hope. And a few others. I'm just saying that... something wasn't right and may now be. We'll see.

I still think MR will wake up, he's defied convention for so long I believe he's got something special. He may only hit .230 this year, but it will be a very valuable .230.

Looking at the list I think Young and Parra will regress, while Upton, Reynolds, LaRoche, Drew, and Johnson will be significantly better (yes, Upton will mash over .900 rest of season). And even a regressed Parra is an upgrade over this years CoJack, while Montero will be a big upgrade over Snyder at bat. I'm still an optimist about this teams offense and starting pitching. The only thing that sucks worse than the bullpen is ownership.

I read it more as a justification for Shoewizard's selection of Justin Upton as the lone Diamondback All-Star. Ironically, he earlier criticized looking a one month's performance of Kelly Johnson. Confused

I'm a Justin Upton fan but you don't, or shouldn't, send a player to the All-Star game based on potential. Send the guys performing the best that season. As odd as it is after last season, I think Chris Young is that guy on the 2010 Diamondbacks team.

Whoever is sent (pity Charlie Manuel for being put in a no win situation), the selection will only further emphasize how bad the Dbacks suck so far in 2010.

Why does CY deserve it over Upton? Is his 261/325/470/795 better than Upton's 269/355/472/827? No. Is he playing better right now? No. CY had a nice couple of months, but he's quickly returning to the player he's always been and is destined to be. Meanwhile, Upton is heating up and becoming himself again as well.

when i think of who has had the most consistant 2010 i think of CY24, he does have good numbers (JU10 are alittle better in the stats you showed) but they have the same HR and it is not close in RBI. the BA is only .008 better


plus i think it is a great story, on how he has made major strides since a terrible 2009

CY has had a better 2010 than 2009, but Upton is our AS.

If you choose to go off of second half of 2009 to first half 2010 as some desire, Upton beats out Young.

If you choose to go off of name power and fan draw as some desire, Upton beats out Young.

It's a wash for best first half of the season so far.

Thanks for confirming my point. You don't reward potential... you reward results. Sort of like a real world job. Shocked

I don't know how Oden's post confirms your point, but regardless your point can have it's own unintended consequences in this industry.

I don't know if they'll take Upton or not, but I bet Johnson still gets some consideration with Utley out. It all depends on which players are taken from other teams that only have 1 representative and I haven't looked at it. Heyward being out could open the door for Upton, but I wouldn't be surprised if Johnson gets the nod if a 2B is needed.

Good point there Oden. Since whomever is the Diamondbacks All-Star is going to be selected by the NL All-Star team manager, need at a particular position makes a whole lot of sense.

so CY gets ZERO consideration as the dbacks rep for the all-star game?

Did me saying "one of the best" offend you so you had to double down to get the elusive "the best"?
