Phillies at Yankees: May 22-24

The 2008 World Series Champion Philadelphia Phillies bring their first place 2009 squad (22-17) up to the Bronx for a highly anticipated three game set with the New York Yankees (24-17), who currently sit in third place but only a game and a half out of first in the tough AL East. 

 

The Phillies will send out three guys they drafted themselves against three guys the Yankees signed this past offseason.  The Yankees now have Alex Rodriguez back from injury to sit in their cleanup spot.  He's been a three true outcomes guy in his 55 PA since returning, hitting 5 homers, walking 12 times, and striking out 7 times. Thanks in part to some generous park effects in their new stadium, the Yankees send out a lineup with quite a lot of power in it.  They have five guys with slugging averages over .500 in their starting lineup this weekend.

 

Brett Myers pitches Friday's game against A.J. Burnett.  The obvious question is whether he is going to give up any or many homeruns in the small new stadium.  Myers has been extremely homerun prone this year, and while all my formulas point towards this being an anomaly, it keeps happening and I'm willing to bet Myers actually has a bigger problem with the longball than projections seem to expect.  He'll go up against A.J. Burnett who has been alright, but definitely not what the Yankees thought they were paying for.  At least so far.  His control seems to be a large part of the problem.

 

The Phillies introduce J.A. Happ to the rotation with a real chance to test himself on FOX Saturday afternoon.  The Yankees do a lean a little bit towards the left side of the plate, but Happ will still have a tall order in front of him.  The Yankees are a patient lineup.  The Yankees will send out Andy Pettitte, a tough lefthander who has been okay since resigning this season, but has not struck out as many people as one would expect.  The Phillies do struggle with lefties and it will be interesting to see what they can do with Pettitte.

 

The matchup a lot of people are looking forward to is Cole Hamels and CC Sabathia on Sunday.  Cole has finally gotten back into form, striking out even more batters than before (over a hitter per inning this year), and looks to put up another solid performance against the team who contributed to his legend.  If you recall, Hamels was 19 years old when he walked onto the mound in Spring Training against the New York Yankees and struck out Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, and Tony Clark in succession.  Clark is gone, but Jeter and A-Rod remain and Hamels looks to come full circle and strike them out again.  CC Sabathia looked unhittable after being traded to the Brewers in 2008 and led them to a Wild Card that they won by only a game.  He seemed to be in line to even up the NLDS at one with the Phillies when they sent him to the showers after 3.2 innings instead.  The Phillies were up 5-1 at that point and on their way to a 2-0 lead in a best of 5.  At that moment, sitting too far from the dugout for him to hear, I exuberantly yelled in Sabathia's direction anyway: "Season over-- your Yankees uniform is waiting for you at the dry cleaners!"  I think we all pretty much knew that Sabathia was headed for the Yankees at that point.  But he couldn't get away from the Phillies!

YANKEES

LINE UP

1) SS Derek Jeter (R): .273/.351/.418


projection average (proj): .300/.370/.430
projected BB/PA (bb): 8.5%
projected K/AB (k): 16%
career gb% (gb): 56%
career infield flies/flyball (iff): 3%
career infield hits/groundball (ifh): 8%
batting average on balls in play tendencies (babip): My system projects him at .362, but most systems only see him at .345.  I think that mine might be more realistic if he's healthy.  He's a very unconventional hitter.  His extremely high groundball rate and his BABIP on groundballs is extremely high too, due to both beating out infield hits and due to hitting very hard groundballs.  He has a lot of power for an extreme groundball hitter, so his flyballs and line drives carry a lot more.  He also almost never pops out.
swing/contact/zone facts (s/c/z): very good eye with slightly above average contact.  mildly patient too.
righty/lefty (r/l):  .826 vs .900 ops; 1.8 vs 1.4 k/bb
home/away (h/a): .863 vs .824 ops; 1.6 vs 1.8 k/bb
pull/opposite (p/o): slight pull hitter
anything else (other): none

2) LF Johnny Damon (L): .318/.387/.597


proj: .280/.355/.425
bb: 10%
k: 14.5%
gb: 45%
iff: 16%
ifh: 10%
babip: My season projects him at .310, which is close to where most projection systems have him.  He gets a lot of infield hits, so he does well on groundballs, but he pops out a lot too.
s/c/z: good eye, patience, and contact skill.
r/l: .811 vs .747 ops; 1.1 vs 1.5 k/bb
h/a: .806 vs .780 ops; 1.0 vs 1.4 k/bb
p/o: pull hitter
other: none

3) 1B Mark Teixeira (S): .250/.371/.542

proj: .290/.385/.525
bb: 13%
k: 20%
gb: 39%
iff: 11%
ifh: 6%
babip: My system projects him at .313, which is similar to where other systems have him.  He hits the ball hard, but he does pop out sometimes.  He gets a good number of infield hits for a power hitter.
s/c/z: good patience that is improving.  good eye.  above average contact skill.  thrown fewer strikes over last few years.
r/l: .905 vs .936 ops; 1.5 vs 1.6 k/bb
h/a: .964 vs .865 ops; 1.7 vs 1.5 k/bb
p/o: extreme pull hitter from both sides
other: much better against finesse pitchers.

4) 3B Alex Rodriguez (R): .171/.382/.537


proj: .295/.390/.555
bb: 12.5%
k: 22.5%
gb: 42%
iff: 11%
ifh: 8%
babip: My system projects him at .309, though most systems have him a bit higher between .315-.320.  He hits for a lot of power, so he does well on line drives.  He gets infield hits, so he does well on groundballs.  He does pop out a lot for a hitter of his type, which may be why the other systems are slightly higher than me on him.
s/c/z: good eye, slightly below average contact, average patience.
r/l: .966 vs .969 ops; 1.8 vs 1.7 k/bb
h/a: .988 vs .946 ops; 1.7 vs 1.7 k/bb
p/o: pull hitter
other: none

5) DH Hideki Matsui (L): .252/.340/.455


proj: .280/.355/.445
bb: 11%
k: 14%
gb: 46%
iff: 7%
ifh: 5%
babip: My system projects him at .300, which most systems seem to see him at.  He avoids popups somewhat, but doesn't hit for all that much power.  He does hit pretty hard groundballs and his groundball rate is a little above average which helps.
s/c/z: good eye, average contact, patient.
r/l: .866 vs .807 ops; 1.0 vs 1.5 k/bb
h/a: .858 vs .837 ops; 1.1 vs 1.2 k/bb
p/o: pull hitter
other: better against power pitchers

6) RF Nick Swisher (S): .238/.383/.531


proj: .245/.360/.450
bb: 14%
k: 26%
gb: 35%
iff: 11%
ifh: 3%
babip: My system projects him at .271, but most see him in the .280s.  He does not do particularly well on groundballs, as he rarely gets infield hits and pulls balls a lot.  He also has poor contact skill, so he probably chops the ball a lot.  He does pretty well on line drives, but he pops out a decent amount too.
s/c/z: below average contact, extremely patient, good eye.
r/l: .804 vs .841 ops; 1.9 vs 0.9 k/bb
h/a: .816 vs .815 ops; 1.4 vs 1.7 k/bb
p/o: major pull hitter
other: none

7) 2B Robinson Cano (L): .317/.354/.527


proj: .300/.350/.465
bb: 5%
k: 12%
gb: 50%
iff: 9%
ifh: 4%
babip: My system projects him at .321, and most systems see him only slightly below that.  He gets a lot of groundballs, which helps his babip. He doesn't hit too many infield flies either.  He has some power and good contact skill that allows him to center.
s/c/z: impatient hitter, not great eye, very good contact skill.
r/l: .818 vs .780 ops; 2.8 vs 2.5 k/bb
h/a: .780 vs .831 ops; 2.9 vs 2.5 k/bb
p/o: slight pull hitter
other: far better against finesse pitchers, struggles a lot against power.

proj: .275/.335/.390
bb: 8%
k: 14%
gb: 49%
iff: 13%
ifh: 6%
babip: My system projects him at .292, but most systems see him closer to .300.  He doesn't have much power, so he doesn't do well on line drives, and he pops out a lot so he doesn't do well on flyballs either.  He does okay on groundballs, since he's pretty fast.
s/c/z: not great eye, good contact skill.
r/l: .739 vs .659 ops; 1.6 vs 1.1 k/bb
h/a: .712 vs .720 ops; 1.4 vs 1.4 k/bb
p/o: spreads the ball around very well.

bb: 9%
k: 31%
gb: 49%
iff: 11%
ifh: 5%
babip: My system does not project him, but most systems have him in the .260s.  He doesn't make good contact, have much power, or have much speed.  So his BABIP is bound to be pretty low.  He doesn't pop out all that much, but he still is probably likely to have a BABIP around that range.
s/c/z: okay eye, okay pateince, poor contact, thrown a lot of strikes.
r/l: .487 vs .617 ops; 5.0 vs 3.4 k/bb

proj: .250/.300/.360
bb: 5%
k: 18%
gb: 48%
iff: 12%
ifh: 10%
babip: My system does not project him, but most systems have him around .290.  He's fast so he will get some infield hits and draw the infield in enough to get balls through the hole.  His lack of power indicates poor ability to do well on line drives and his infield fly rate indicates poor ability to do well on popups.
s/c/z: very bad eye and a free swinger, too.  average contact.  i can't understate how poor his eye is.  he swings at more pitches out of the strike zone than jeff francoeur and it's not even close.  somehow, he is thrown a lot of strikes, presumably due to his inability to do much damage on them.  even still, he'll chase almost anything close.
r/l: .663 vs .724 ops; 4.0 vs 3.4 k/bb
h/a: .708 vs .654 ops; 2.8 vs 5.9 k/bb

ifh: ?
babip: My system does not project him.  systems vary wildly on him.  seems to be somewhat powerless, with some speed.  pops out a decent amount.  maybe .275 or so sounds right, but that's just a guess.
s/c/z: early indications are that he has a pretty bad eye, average patience, and good contact skill.
r/l: indications are that he hits righties much better in the minors than lefties.
h/a: not enough info

s/c/z: early indications are that he's very patient with a pretty good eye, and good contact skill.

babip: My system does not project him since he did not get 300 PA last year.  He has some power so he does pretty well on line drives.  He should do well given his ability to avoid popouts.  He's not especially fast, so probably not great on grounders.  Projections around .330 seem about right, though maybe a tiny bit high.
s/c/z: very good eye, patient, average contact
r/l: .848 vs .886 ops; 1.4 vs 1.7 k/bb

projected K/AB (k): 11%
career gb% (gb): 42%
career infield flies/flyball (iff): 10%
career infield hits/groundball (ifh): 5%
batting average on balls in play tendencies (babip): about average overall, though a little bit high popup rate so slightly below average.  my system has him at about .308.
swing/contact/zone facts (s/c/z): good eye, pretty selective, but very high contact rate so low walk rate
righty/lefty (r/l): 1.7 vs 1.3 k/bb, mostly because of higher k-rate as lhb.  otherwise similar on contact
home/away (h/a): 1.5 vs 1.7 k/bb; .805 vs .739 ops
pull/opposite (p/o): definite pull hitter
anything else (other): stole 47 bases in 50 attempts last year.

proj: .295/.380/.525
bb: 9.5%
k: 18%
gb: 37%
iff: 10%
ifh: 6%
babip: distinctly above average historically and for projections too; seemingly strong power leads to high line drive babip rate and reasonably high groundball babip especially for pull hitting lefty; high on flyballs despite high infield fly rate since he hits deep flyballs.  my system has him at about .308, but he beats projection systems consistently.
s/c/z: pretty good eye, somewhat selective, somewhat high contact rate
r/l: not significant-- only 1.7 vs 2.0 k/bb; .919 vs .865 ops
h/a: similar k/bb home & away; better hr at home-- probably park factors; higher babip at home too
p/o: pull hitter
other: much better against power pitchers relative to other hitters

3) LF Raul Ibanez (L): .349/.410/.724

proj: .285/.350/.480
bb: 9%
k: 17%
gb: 42%
iff: 11%
ifh: 5%
babip: above average, probably because he spreads the ball around pretty well for a power hitter; much better babip with men on-- probably hooks ball in hole well or maybe he was shifted against more so beforehand.  my system sees him right at .300.
s/c/z: definitely a good eye though it's getting worse, slightly above average contact
r/l: .850 vs .733; 1.5 vs 2.8 k/bb
h/a: better k/bb (1.6 vs 1.9) but worse power probably park factors, and probably likely to be better at home
p/o: slight pull hitter but not much for a power hitter
other: none

4) 1B Ryan Howard (L): .266/.349/.545

proj: .275/.375/580
bb: 14%
k: 33%
gb: 40%
iff: 2%
ifh: 4%
babip: low on groundballs over time as he pulls the vast majority of them; very very high on flyballs because he almost never pops out in the infield at all and many of his flyballs are very deep.  also since so few of his flyballs stay in the park (only 2/3 or so), a higher percentage of his balls in play are line drives-- which he does well on like many power hitters-- his low contact rate means he sometimes make poor contact though.  probably above average overall
s/c/z: swings a lot especially for someone who doesn't see many strikes.  however, he is pretty good at distinguishing balls from strikes despite the consensus on him.  he makes terrible contact overall though.  my system sees him at .310.
r/l: 1.064 vs .786 ops: say it with me "that means he's good against righties, not bad against lefties!"  in fact, he's the best hitter against righties in baseball right now probably.  his k/bb vs lhp is 3.7 vs 1.6 vs rhp.  he has a lot of power against lefties however, but a lower babip.  i don't have split data on pull% vs lhp/rhp but observationally i'm pretty sure that's the difference in his babip: .338 vs .309.
h/a: much higher babip on road.  very similar hr numbers.  2.0 vs 3.2 k/bb.
p/o: pull hitter, especially on groundballs-- hits more homeruns the opposite way though
other: struggles mightily against power pitchers and groundball pitchers, dominate flyball pitchers (since he almost never pops out, and has 10.3% hr rate) and smashes finesse pitchers (11.8% hr rate); he also does much better on babip with runners on base as defenders can't shift against him-- especially with runners in scoring position

bb: 12.5%
k: 29%
gb: 38%
iff: 8%

babip: high on groundballs due to high infield hit rate, high on line drives due to power, and hits pretty deep flyballs too; has been historically probably higher than it should be since he's faced more lhp than normal rhb do; overall still seems to be very above average.  my system has him at .329.
s/c/z: very selective and pretty good eye; somewhat low contact rate
r/l: .762 vs .919 ops; 2.4 vs 2.0 k/bb; hr rate of 6.7% vs 2.9%
h/a: not much of a split at all
p/o: spreads ball around well for power hitter, but still a pull hitter
other: stole 20 bases in 21 attempts last year

bb: 7.5%
k: 13%
gb: 46%
iff: 15%
ifh: 8%
babip: slightly above average due to high babip on groundballs-- partly because infield plays in for him and he spreads the ball around well; not that high due to high infield fly rate.  my system sees him at .303.
s/c/z: pretety bad eye but high contact rate
r/l: much more power righthanded (1.6% to 3.8% HR rate), but much better k/bb as lefty: 1.65 vs 1.88; higher babip lefty also (.316 vs .286)
h/a: far fewer walks on road but nearly exactly the same strikeout rate, same power, same babip
p/o: pull hitter both ways
other: stole 36 of 47 bases last year

bb: 6%
k: 15.5%
gb: 44%
iff: 15%
ifh: 5%
babip: very low-- pops up a lot, hits groundballs predictably to left side and is slow so they can play shaded over and deep; not all that much power so not terrific on line drives either, makes a lot of weak contact as he isn't good at making contact so he chops a lot of balls.  my system sees him at .271.
s/c/z: high swing rate and not terribly good at distinguishing balls from strikes.  swung significantly less in 2008, but it was as much of a decrease in balls as strikes, makes average contact
r/l: 3.3 vs 2.3 k/bb; .708 vs .755 ops, more babip and a little more power agaisnt lefties
h/a: much higher k rate on road, similar bb rate; more power on road, higher babip at home.  likely not much difference (.725 vs .716 overall ops)
p/o: definite pull hitter
other: defensive numbers dipped last year, had offseason surgery for back, perhaps these are related

gb: 50% (but rose in 2008 to 54% from 46%)
iff: 9.5%
ifh: 4%
babip: was extraordinarily low in 2008, but that seems to be rather flukey.  his high groundball rate and solid contact rate and pitch selection indicate he should be a good babip guy, but he does very poorly on groundball as he chops the ball a lot.  my system sees him at .288.
s/c/z: very good eye and excellent contact skill, extremely patient
r/l: bizarre reverse split despite 0.5 k/bb vs lhp and 1.2 vs rhp; impossibly low .204 babip against lhp, probably flukey and probably much better vs lhp in reality
h/a: similar k/bb, worse babip but higher power at home (park factors)
p/o: slight pull hitter
other: better against power pitchers

r/l: .592 vs .764 ops; 2.5 vs 1.2 k/bb; 5.7% vs 8.8% xbh/ab-- he's actually  average if not above average against lhp; he just is terrible against rhb.  he should be used as a counterswitch to loogy use against lefty pinch hitters
h/a: more power at home and more walks at home; similar strikeout rate and babip

babip: has been high but probably should not be projected as high-- success derives from impossibly high line drive babip which doesn't typically happen for non-extreme power hitters.  given his popup rate, he probably isn't a .320 babip guy and there isn't a .285 hitter
s/c/z: poor eye but very high swing rate; average contact rate
r/l: .761 vs .579 ops despite impossible .481 babip against lhp.  in reality, he strikes out in 48% of at-bats against lhp.  he should never see them.  absolutely no power against lefties also.

ROTATION


FRIDAY STARTER: Brett Myers (R): 4.50 ERA, 3.4 BB/9, 6.8 K/9, 2.2 HR/9, 6.16 FIP, 46% GB


proj avg: 4.15 ERA, 3.1 BB/9, 8.0 K/9, 1.3 HR/9
gb: 47%
pitches: 48% fb, 23% cb, 18% sl, 9% ch, 1% ct, 0.2% sf
r/l: .788 vs .747 ops despite 3.1 vs 1.95 k/bb; main issue is much higher HR rate vs rhb, slightly higher babip vs them as well; does not seem to be selection bias
h/a: .738 vs .800 ops; 2.7 vs 2.15 k/bb; slightly higher HR rate at home, but that is probably park factors as he surrenders far more doubles on road
other: HR rate is bizarre-- very few pitchers have the HR/Flyball rate he does.  My personal suspicion is that statistics that don't exhibit much persistence despite what common sense suggests only do not exhibit persistence specifically because players make adjustments.  If you throw fastball after fastball on the outside corner on every 1-2 count, the hitters will respond by hitting singles to the opposite field over and over again and your BABIP will go up.  However, pitchers learn to mix up their pitches and BABIP ends up lacking persistence due to the constant game theoretical reaction that pitchers and hitters take.  For Myers, his bizarre refusal to use his curveball early in the game leaves him especially vulernable to RHB who know it isn't coming.  A little game theoretical mixed strategy would probably allow him to finally live up to his peripherals which suggest a low HR rate and borderline ace stuff.

r/l: .680 vs .748, but same 3.6 k/bb both ways; slightly more power vs lhb-- this is probably selection bias as managers withhold all but the best lefties against him (explaining 20% of hitters faced are lefties only)
h/a: 3.85 vs 3.4 k/bb; .676 vs .709 ops-- less of a difference due to higher HR rate at home
other: much higher k-rate at night: 25% vs 20%, which is statistically significant.  ERA difference (4.71 vs 3.01 exaggerated by babip difference), as HR rate and XBH rate very similar.  most likely he strikes out more at night.
