Phillies vs. Cardinals: May 4-5

New, 6 comments

The Phillies (12-10) take on the Cardinals (17-8) for two games in St. Louis before heading back east to face the Mets in New York.  The Cardinals have been fantastic thus far this year, only just behind the Dodgers (18-8) for the best record in the NL.  This has been a mixture of solid hitting and good pitching.  They have not been overly dominant and they certainly aren't going to win 100 games this year, but they have been solid nonetheless.  Monday pits the two Phillies' recent successful midseason starting pitching acquisitions against each other, Joe Blanton and Kyle Lohse.  Lohse got away after the 2007 season, and has been successful with the Cardinals since then, finally earning himself the large deal he was seeking after a solid 2008.  On Tuesday night, Brett Myers takes on Adam Wainwright.  Myers has struggled with the long ball thus far this year, but has shown signs of dominance at times.  Wainwright has been good so far in 2009, and will be another formidable opponent for the Phillies this year.

CARDINALS

LINEUP

The Cardinals have the best hitter in baseball in the three hole of their lineup.  Pujols is off to another phenomenal start this season.  There is no one else especially good in the Cardinals lineup, but they are all solid hitters otherwise.  Ankiel provides power from the left side in the two hole, and Ludwick provides power from the right side in the four hole.  Neither are major power hitters, but both will hit quite a few balls out of the park this season.  Chris Duncan is also a pretty good left handed hitter in the five hole.  He struggles against lefties though.

BENCH


The Cardinals only carry four guys on the bench.  Colby Rasmus, the Cardinals top prospect, is a solid hitting LHB and a threat off the bench.  The other three guys are poor hitters.  The Cardinals starting 8 will pretty much have to do the damage.  The three non-Rasmus hitters are all RHB.

ROTATION

The Phillies will face Kyle Lohse and Adam Wainwright this weekend.  Lohse is a former Phillie who got away.  He has good control and keeps the ball on the ground for the most part.  He is better against righties, but does not have an extreme split, just a good one.  Wainwright has had a strong year, as expected.  He's good at inducing groundballs, and he's especially tough on righties.  He doesn't miss that many bats but has reasonably good control.

BULLPEN


Our old friend Ryan Franklin has emerged as the closer.  He has yet to surrender a run this year, too.  He will, though.  He has a career of mediocrity, and he will eventually struggle again.  He doesn't strike people out very well, and so he is pretty long ball prone.  The Cards have two lefties in their pen, Dennys Reyes and Trever Miller.  Both are pretty good slider-throwing lefties, with decent platoon splits but not extreme ones.  Both are capable of getting righties out too.  Reyes is good at getting groundballs.  The set up man is Kyle McClennan.  He is a pretty good pitcher without much of a platoon split.  He gets a decent amount of strikeouts and groundballs.

PHILLIES


LINE UP


The heart of the Phillies lineup leans further to the left than Ralph Nader.  The rest of the lineup is pretty well balanced, but with Utley hitting 3rd, Howard hitting 4th, and Ibanez hitting 6th, managers have an advantage to use lefties against the Phillies in key situations.  Both of the switch hitters atop the lineup hit lefties a little better than righties, and the bottom of the lineup has two righties.  The Phillies' catcher Carlos Ruiz is on the disabled list now with a strained rib cage, so Chris Coste and Lou Marson have been splitting time with Coste starting more often.  Lou Marson is a pretty highly touted catching prospect who had an extraordinary year in AA last year, though has yet to hit for much power.  Carlos Ruiz had a setback but seems to be likely to return soon.  This season, the Phillies have seen Rollins struggle at the top of the lineup, though he has shown a few signs of life recently.  Utley and Ibanez have both been on fire and have carried the team.  The offense has been spectacular thus far, mostly because of those two, and as Howard continues to hit the ball hard, the team is probably going to see a breakout from him soon too.  Though Howard has only homered four times in the first twenty games, he has hit an extraordinary number of deep fly balls to the track, and no less than in seasons passed.  I expect a homerun tear out of Howard soon, though reading through that, I kind of feel like I just predicted the sun to rise.

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 pulls from strikes despite the consensus on him.  he makes terrible contact overall though
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

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

other: better against power pitchers, currently on DL with strained rib cage, probably longer than 15 days as originally thought




BENCH

Like their lineup, the Phillies' bench is much better from the left side.  Dobbs and Stairs are two solid lefthanded pinch hitters with power.  Stairs is by far more patient and is much more successful against lefties than Dobbs.  From the right side, the Phillies have superutility man Eric Bruntlett.  Bruntlett struggles mightily against RHP, but actually has very solid numbers against LHP.  Bruntlett can be used as a counterswitch when managers bring in lefties to face Dobbs or Stairs.  The Phillies other RHB on the bench is Miguel Cairo.  He is not a very good hitter, but is flexible and can play many positions.  Cairo has failed to hit anything yet, and is bound to be on the way out.

ROTATION

The Phillies rotation has struggled a lot early, though they seem to be mostly struggling with bad luck rather than bad performances.  Their walk and strikeout rates across the board are indicative that we should expect similar performances to last season, and their groundball rates haven't been out of the norm either.  However, all of them seem to struggling on homeruns per flyball.  This is known to be a luck based statistic, with little variance in skill level, so it is somewhat hard to believe that they would necessarily continue to perform this badly.  However, it does seem coincidental that all of them would struggle with it at once.  The Phillies go with Chan Ho Park Friday, in what is a very important fourth start for him.  He has been poor in one start and mediocre in the other two, and the Phillies do have J.A. Happ ready to replace him if they want.  His strong Spring Training performance was so good that it shattered any argument of "small sample size" and instead calls into question a biased sample, where he may have faced some weaker hitters.  Even still, he seems to have a K/BB of about 2/1 thus far and that has to be a good sign.  Hopefully he can fix up his luck on homeruns per flyball and batting average on balls in play.  On Saturday, the Phillies will turn to Jamie Moyer.  Moyer certaily is going to show his age at some point, and he really can't be expected to pitch until he's 50, but his poor performance this year also seems luck driven as his core statistics of strikeouts, walks, and groundballs seem in line with recent tendencies.  The Phillies will wrap up with Joe Blanton on Sunday.  Blanton seems to be missing a lot of bats, striking out an above normal 8.8 per nine, but when he doesn't miss those bats, the bats seem to hit the ball awful hard.  Blanton hopes the Mets will make weaker contact.

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.

BULLPEN

Lidge has been nowhere near as effective as the Phillies closer in the early going this year, but has gotten through a few tough saves anyway.  However, that still leaves him as one of the best closers in baseball if he is healthy.  His health itself has been in question as he has been resting an injured knee for a few days.  He has not gone on the disabled list and may not, and we will probably no more after a Friday bullpen session.  In his stead, Ryan Madson has closed out one game successfully in one try.  Ryan Madson has stepped up to be an elite setup man recently, as his velocity improved mightily over the course of 2008 and has started strong in 2009.  He has had a few bad moments and a few moments of dominance thus far.  The Phillies will have to make do against LHB with J.C. Romero suspended through May.  Scott Eyre, Jack Taschner, and J.A. Happ are the Phillies' lefties in the pen.  Happ does not have especially difficult stuff against lefties, though, and will probably be the long man.  Eyre and Taschner both should not face RHB, especially Taschner who exemplified that inability well against the Nationals on Thursday.  Chad Durbin is somewhat streaky, but I've remained bearish on him for a while.  He still is a reasonable middle reliever to use at times.  Condrey is the other middle reliever, but he should not face lefties at all if possible.  The Phillies' bullpen has been extraordinary since the beginning of 2008, and has kept them in games in 2009 thus far.  It is due for some regression, but I suppose the rotation is due for some improvement as well.
