I am down with OPP, and we are on pace to go 13-6 against Cleveland this year...(which is pretty impressive i think)

I think at that time he had hit another popup that was caught so technically, he was also one wind blown popup from batting .500. :)


liked for the use of “technically” in this sentence.

The increase in velocity is real. I would imagine the changes he has made to his delivery are causing some of the troubles with command. I think that will improve as the year progresses.

Apparently the ability to hit the ball with exit velocity of 108mph or greater has been proven statistically to correlate with OPS. Two Twins have four such hits this year (placing them tied for seventh in MLB):

Nelson Cruz
Byron Buxton

Oh, and Schoop has three.

4 such hits.. Schoop has 3... Cruz has 1... Buck has...? I guess we're having fun with numbers!

Not Twins related...

Chris Davis on the Orioles is 2 ABs shy of the ML record for longest stretch of ABs without a hit. He's 0-44 currently dating back to September 2018.

Is that including pitchers or not?

btw, the O’s still owe him almost $70,000,000.

Non-pitchers.

 

I'm not sure who holds the record among pitchers...

Actually more than that. $92 mil in salary for 2019-2022. That includes deferred money (they'll be paying him until 2037) -- with the deferral discount, MLB estimated the present-day value at about 92% when the contract was signed, or $84 mil remaining.

 

Plus they still own him deferred money from 2016-2018 too -- that's another $18 mil.

And 1 for his last 60. Thought Buxton's April of 2017 bad.

Hit dingers.  Never bunt.

Yeah, but that's only about a dollar a strikeout.

Yeah, math. Somehow I only calculated 3 more years. He still has FOUR seasons remaining.

Unless something changes for him in a big way, he’s going to be the answer to “Worst pro Contract” forever.

First time I have seen a negative OPS+. He is -53 through 8 games so is on pace for a -1073 for the year.

Davis already has 5 of the top 30 single season marks. 13 K in 27 PA. If he actually gets 500 PA, that pace would break the current record by more than 30.

Unfortunately OPS+ is a rate stat. :)

In terms of counting stats, Davis is at -0.5 fWAR already, so he's on pace for -9.

Fun with numbers :).I was considering using a pitcher for the absurd like if Gibson makes 35 starts he is on a pace for an ERA of 337.35 but Davis presented itself.
