Stat Notes - July 10

Wow -- that was fun. 

It appears the Phillies are officially past their scoring troubles: 

 
  G OPS R/G
through 5/17: 37 .815 5.73
5/18-6/15: 25 .601 2.52
6/16-on: 23 .777 5.78


RHP vs. LHP opponents 
I always thought that opponents wanted to throw lefties at the Phillies due to their lefty-heavy lineup, but they've faced fewer lefties than the league average this year:
League: 27% of PA's against LHPs
Phils: 25% of PA's

They did face more than their share in 2009:
League: 25% of PA's
Phils: 28%

I was also under the impression that the Phillies don't hit as well against lefties, but that hasn't been the case, either last year or this year (R/27 is runs scored per 27 outs):

2010   R/27 OPS
vs. RHP   4.97 .733
vs. LHP   5.38 .767
2009   R/27 OPS
vs. RHP   5.19 .779
vs. LHP   5.77 .787


Howard's Left-Right split
After the walk-off against lefty Arthur Rhodes, Howard's splits are now this (the league average is for left-handed batters):

  AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K K% AVG OBP SLG OPS League Avg
vs. RHP 225 40 72 11 4 11 45 20 50 22% .320 .379 .551 .930 .755
vs. LHP 113 15 29 4 0 6 20 6 35 31% .257 .298 .451 .749 .690


The .181 differential in OPS is the lowest of his career:

  Right Left Split
2005 1.041 .421 .620
2006 1.164 .922 .242
2007 1.072 .826 .246
2008 .967 .745 .222
2009 1.088 .654 .434
2010 .930 .749 .181

His .870 overall OPS is right where it was on average in 2007-2009 through game 85 (.864).  His average ending OPS for those 3 years was .930.
