Spring Training Stats
OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: Spring Training Stats
While the numbers are green, Kendall, Chavey and Johnson lead the pack, based on 25 or more at bats. Garrett, Ginter, Crosby and Thomas are struggling.
Danny Haren's pitching stats look great, while Meyer has been hit hard.
Crosby's hitting .229. He's never going to win Rookie of the Year hitting that way.
...oh wait, he already did.

Okay moving right along and perpetualy pimping my man Byrnes....He seems to be the team leader.
There are 10 players with 30 or more plate appearances (Hatte & Chavy have 29) of that 10 Byrnes has 37 ABs. Sticking with those 10 Byrnes has the best SLG% .649, most HRs 4, most RBIs 11, tied for runs 8. Even if you lowered the criteria to 25 ABs Byrnes would still be a top leader. BPF, did you casually omit Byrnsie? Asch, RFF care to back me up here.
It was not my intent to slight Byrnesy at all. The three players I named, Kendall, Chavey and Johnson, have OBP of .500, .514, and .485 respectively. Eric is much further down the list at .333. With 25 ABs, Hiram "Byrnesy Jr." Bocachica has an OBP of .452, which should make Oakachica happy.
Remember thy Moneyball measuring stick, the old OBP.

So...now I am Oakachica. Well, you can never be too rich, too thin or have too many vowels on your screen name, as they say.
I am a big Byrnes rooter, but I am slightly concerned that he is carrying his struggles from Winterball over to ST. That being said although the .333 OPB does concern me, but the .649 SLG certainly towers over Bocachica.
Given the A's overall lack of power, it would be great to see Byrnesy develop into a bona fide power hitter. He certainly has the potential.
By the way, I see where Bob Nightengale mentioned that Byrnesy is still likely to be traded by opening day. Given Nightengale's track record, I feel certain that Byrnsey will be with the A's all season!

I believe Barry threw 84 pitches over 3 innings. Same 'ol, same 'ol ... walks and errors. Hey, it's still only Spring Training.
I was watching the Backs/Texas for a few innings. Like somebody said, that is a very nice looking facility in Surprise.
