Some UGLY Blanton Stats


Recommended Posts

Lefties against Blanton: .336/.379/.504

Righties against Blanton: .412/.440/.637

 

First pitch swingers are 13/27 with 3 HR 4 2B 1 3B and a 1.519(!) OPS. 

 

Even on 0-2 counts he's allowed 4 hits in 12 times. 

 

Between his 46-60 pitch zone during the game, hitters have a 1.292 OPS against. 

 

I don't think it takes a genius to realize how truly awful he's been but these stats are mind boggling bad. Maybe he should think about mixing up some of his first pitches so hitters aren't killing him.

New drinking game. 

 

Take a shot every time Blanton gives up a run. 

 

I don't think I'd make the 5th inning. 

 

 

On the offensive side, take a shot:

 

every time Mike Trout strikes out looking

every time Kendrick grounds into a double play

every time Pujols hits a weak Vernon-esque popup 

every time Erick Aybar makes a boneheaded out on the basepaths

every time Josh Hamilton strikes out swinging on a pitch in the dirt

Here's a scary thought.

 

Being right handed we'd expect lefties to out hit righties vs Blanton in the long run. The fact that right handed AB's are a larger sample is evidence that it is the lefties numbers that need to 'regress' closer towards the righties than the other way around...
