Phillies Hitters vs. Projections

Instead of comparing to the lowest of the 4 projections published at FanGraphs, this table now compares to the average of the 4:

Vproj_medium

Domonic Brown
Trying not to get too excited over such a small sample, but Brown now has a .361/.410/.556 line in his last 9 games (39 PAs), with 2 home runs. BABIP of .393.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers still have the best record in baseball, but have lost 6 of their last 7. They lost 2 of 3 in Colorado over the weekend, and before that were swept in 4 games at home against Milwaukee.

Phillies Team Stats vs. early 2011 and vs. Dodgers

First 16 games: 2.7 runs per game (15th in the NL)

One of the NL's best offenses since 4/23 (36 games)
4.8 runs per game (3rd)
74% of games with 3+ scored (2nd)
64% of games with 4+ scored (2nd)

One of the NL's best teams since 5/10 (23 games)
.609 W% (3rd)
.571 Pythagorean W% (2nd)
4.8 runs per game (4th)
.785 OPS (2nd)

Dodgers
While LA strikes out more than the Phillies, they are one of the more disciplined teams in the league, working good hitters counts and then showing patience in those situations. They have the second highest walk rate and highest OBP in the NL.

Upcoming Milestones

Jimmy Rollins
- On Saturday Rollins passed Del Ennis for 3rd place on the Phillies' all-time Total Bases list. He now has 3,031, and trails only Mike Schmidt (4,404), and Ed Delahanty (3,230).

- 8 more runs scored (34 total) will tie him with Richie Ashburn for 3rd on the Phillies list with 1,114. Still ahead will be Schmidt (1,506) and Delahanty (1,367).

- Needs 4 more stolen bases (14 for the year) to tie dead-ball era outfielder Sherry Magee for 3rd on the Phillies' list at 387, behind Billy Hamilton (508) and Delahanty (412). In fact Rollins has been the Phillies' leader for the post-1920 era ever since he passed Larry Bowa's 288 back in 2008. Surprising perhaps, but Richie Ashburn only stole 199 with the Phillies, partly because he played in an era where there was much less stealing. He led the league once, in his 1948 rookie season, with 32.

Juan Pierre
- Pierre needs to score 1 more run to reach 1,000 for his career (he would become the 27th active player with 1,000+).

That will also make Pierre the 19th player in history with 2,000 hits, 1,000 runs, and 500 steals. The last 4 to join this club were Tim Raines (2002), Rickey Henderson (2003), Kenny Lofton (2007), and Barry Bonds (2007).
