Past 33 games for Halos starters

Going back to the game after (April 29) Richard's implosion vs the Skanks at home: 

191 innings (almost 6 per game), 153 hits, 183/59 Ks/BBs, 2.59 ERA, 1.11 WHIP

This has been my intuition recently. You can say that our relief was overworked early on and that's why they are so bad now, but...man, they aren't being asked for a ton right now, and they are really finding new and exciting ways to not come through.

Overall, the starting pitching has been a big surprise. It was debatable on how well Ohtani was going to do this season as a pitcher but we knew the stuff was there. Barria has been a great surprise, Skaggs and Heaney too up to this point. And when it comes to Richards, staying healthy AND pitching solid (but not great) baseball has been a big surprise. Pretty good starting rotation, so there is hope that this team can get hot and go on a long winning streak if the lineup starts hitting again like they did early on in the season. And if the bullpen improves, which is a must.

The steadiness of the rotation is outstanding, as I mentioned in my 'Starting Rotation Will Save Us' thread, which I still believe...if we're strong there, we'll stay in the race. 

The pen is really missing Middleton. I didn't calculate up Krol, Paredes, Pena, Drake, etc., but by having to bring those guys into the fold, we're pressing Anderson, Alvarez, and Johnson far more than we should be. Bedrosian has been awful. Even if you remove his 4-run blow-up against the Tigers, it's unimpressive and has poor peripherals. 

Conversely, 1/3 of the offense has been worse than terrible. Historically bad. And that's really exposed the 'struggles' of Upton and Pujols, even though they haven't truly been awful, otherwise their lines would be acceptable in a balanced lineup.

I still think by giving Hermosillo (or even other guys like Blash and Young) some ABs in RF would do wonders. Kinsler looks like he's showing signs of life, as does Valbuena - remember, he gets hot in bunches, and they just need one other reliever to help shoulder the load. Herrera is just too expensive for now. A solid vet a la David Hernandez last year would be incredibly cheap and would help stabilize the pen quite a bit.

Parker and Ramirez have been fine.   Anderson too, if not for the wildness  

If Anderson could ever reign in the wildness, these three could be a solid enough 3-4-5 behind an acquired Herrera and acquired setup guy.  

Alvarez lately is proving that he's a solid middle innings guy, but not a high pressure spots guy.

Johnson is almost toast.   BadPebble either needs a shrink or a bigger sack.  Morris may have the off speed pitch, but also nothing of note to go with it.

Parker is better suited in the set-up role.  Then Anderson/Ramirez as 6th, 7th.  Then the other guys can fall into place.  We just need that bona-fide closer to put everything into shape.

Kelvin Herrera: 13 G, 13 IP, 11 H, 0 BB, 8 K, 1.38 ERA, .234 BAA
Moustakas: .246/.319/.415/.734 in 32 games

David Hernandez: 14 G, 17 IP, 12 H, 6 BB, 14 K, 2.65 ERA, .194 BAA
Tyler Clippard: 16 G, 15.2 IP, 16 H, 7 BB, 20 K, 4.60 ERA, .262 BAA 
 - gave up 4 ER in one outing.
Nate Jones: 12 G, 10.1 IP, 8 H, 7 BB, 9 K, 4.35 ERA, .216 BAA - also gave up 4 ER in one outing.
Bruce Rondon: 12 G, 10.1 IP, 10 H, 3 BB, 12 K,  2.61 ERA, .233 BAA
Brad Brach11 G, 11.1 IP, 14 H, 5 BB, 16 K, 2.38 ERA, .286 BAA
Craig Stammen: 15 G, 15 IP, 13 H, 4 BB, 16 K, 1.20 ERA, .228 BAA

There are plenty of other arms out there besides Herrera who won't cost nearly as much and may have similar effect. He's gonna cost too much right now. Save those prospects either for the long-term, or for someone else closer to deadline - maybe another reliever then, maybe a long-term infielder, or even another controllable SP. If we lose one of our current guys in the rotation things could get shaky fast.

@Angel Oracle badpebble isn’t going to become a thing.  I respect your ability of nicknames too much to let you tarnish it with that one.  While we are at it, Dipussy is not as good as your previous name for him, although I forget what it was.  Dipshito, maybe?  Williamsport Willits and Mathisn’t are my two favorite.  You are our Dennis Miller.

Dipoto's was previously Dipeutered.      BadRock does have more oomph to it for Bedrosian, opposite of BedRock for his dad.

Idk if it's already been brought up, by why is Upton green and Cozart yellow?

 

Also, the fact that Ohtani has 1 less K than Richards in 2 less starts is pretty impressive. Skaggs is also crushing it in the K department due to his curve ball... His BAA is a little concerning though.

Yeah, like mentioned, it's because Upton's .805 OPS is 'good' - even if it is under-performing below where he should be - while Cozart's .720 OPS is sort of just average. 

Definitely wasn't a scientific system, just wanted to attribute something visual with the performance. For instance, Noe Ramirez's 3.50 ERA isn't particularly good, but the peripherals were enough to push him over the edge. Similarly, Anderson's strikeouts and BAA are certainly good - but the walks and ERA counter it back down a bit. If there was some trend in their production that tilted things one way or another, I'd use that to determine.

For instance, had it not been for Valbuena and Kinsler performing well in Detroit, the line-up would have full of red - bad - performers, and it would have really stood out as such against the middling pen performance. There's been a lot of back and forth on what our problem has been - the offense, or the bullpen? And I think the answer is clearly both. We're relying heavily on a lot of bullpen arms that simply aren't that good and a pen that isn't that deep, and we've trotted out a line-up that was nearly 1/2 non-existent. The offense's overall numbers are inflated a bit by guys like Ohtani and Simmons, but significantly so by Trout. 

**Cocktail Napkin Math** For instance, if you ignore Kinsler and Valbuena's bad week and roll everyone's cumulative OPS together - except Trout - it's .639 for those listed above. .639!!! Add Trout to it and it jumps up 50 points to .689. That shows how heavily his performance can mask our offenses problems.
