Taking a Glance at Pat's Bat

I have some statistics for you all to ponder. Who remembers that old left fielder for our Phillies named Pat Burrell? It's been a while, but if you still have some memories of him, these numbers could be of interest to you. I just thought we'd take a look at Pat's numbers in Phillies' wins against Pat's numbers in Phillies' losses.

In Phillies wins...
Batting avg-.296
HR- 159
RBI- 580
Slg %- .570

In Phillies losses...
Batting avg- .215
HR- 92
RBI- 247
Slg %- .391


Take from this comparison what you will, but I'd assert that this displays Pat's inconsistencies. An argument could be made that this shows how integral Pat was for our Phillies in wins, but if that's the point of view one chooses, there's no ignoring what type of credit he'd deserve in the losses. Blame.

And here is another quick look at the spring performances of John Mayberry Jr. and Greg Golson. Golson was traded for Mayberry in the offseason, as Texas and Philadelphia swapped former top draft picks.

As of this writing, Mayberry Jr. is hitting .277 in 11 total spring exhibition games, with 3 homers, 8 RBI and 1 stolen base.
Golson has played in 9 games, and has a lofty .438 batting avg., with a homer, 2 doubles and 7 RBI. Greg has been been caught in his only stolen base attempt.

That's a fantastic Burrell stat. I wonder what it is for J-Roll.

Interesting stat. Thanks for posting that.. and Mayberry has done a great job so far this spring.

That doesn't really show anything. Have you looked at any other players? Most of them suck when the team loses and hit really well when the team wins; that's not really significant.

Some examples:

Chase Utley
In Phillies wins...
Batting avg-.345
HR- 94
RBI- 364
Slg %- .625

In Phillies losses...
Batting avg- .239
HR- 36
RBI- 128
Slg %- .399

Ryan Howard
In Phillies wins...
Batting avg-.313
HR- 117
RBI- 334
Slg %- .678

In Phillies losses...
Batting avg- .236
HR- 60
RBI- 165
Slg %- .480

Hahaha...thanks, John.

There goes my potential for sequels, and discussing what you decided to bust my Ballz about.
