2011 Philadelphia Phillies Rankings

Record:
49-30, .620 winning %, best in baseball

Offense:
R - 320 (16th)
AVG - .246 (21st)
OBP - .320 (15th)
SLG - .373 (22nd)
OPS - .693 (20th)
DBL - 115 (27th)
TRPL - 17 (5th tied)
HR - 64 (17th)
SB - 48 (19th)
BB - 266 (6th)
K - 486 (25th)

Overall, a punchless offense that has scored 3 runs or less in 43 of their 79 games . They put the ball in play plenty, but mostly as lazy fly balls, pop-ups, or soft grounders. Power is missing from this team, and that doesn't stand to improve unless Utley recaptures his stroke and Dom Brown starts justifying the hype.

Pitching:
ERA - 3.05 (1st)
WHIP - 1.19 (3rd)
BAA - .243 (6th)
BB:K - 207:610 (1st)
QS - 53 (1st)
CG - 9 (1st)
SHO - 11 (1st)
SV% - 92% (1st)

We are witnessing one of the best pitching staffs (rotation and bullpen collectively) to perform for the Phillies. This could be historic.

Fielding:
E - 34 (1st)
% - .989 (1st)
CS - 27% (17th)

A sure-handed team that makes the routine, albeit not spectacular plays. It has recently been written that they lack range (can't find article), but hey, at least they're not the Oakland E's (61 errors).

Probably way too soon for this question, but here goes anyhow. Any predictions on total number of games they'll win this season. They've reached the 50 mark with a little over 15 games to play until the all star break. Could this be a record setting year in the wins catagory. Perhaps 116+?

Steve- you damn well better not have jinxed them into a major losing streak by saying they've already won 50 games...it's 49.

Anyway, I'd like to say this team reaches 100+ wins (currently on pace for 100), but I think it's going to be near 95.

Peter said...

yeah keep in mind that the all-star break isn't actually the half-way point of the season... like Carson said they're on pace for exactly 100 wins and i'd imagine that that's about as best they can do, unless the offense picks up considerably.
