Justin Turner is giving batting average new life

Batting average isn’t the end all anymore when it comes to evaluating the kind of season a player is having but it is can still catch the fans imagination when a player flirts with the magic .400 season.

Justin Turner is still at .387, and as the calendar turns to late June he could set a few LAD records.  That batting average would currently be the best in LAD history for a first half break.  Mike Piazza and Tommy Davis had to be on this list. I had forgotten about the great start Nomar had in 2006.   Seeing Manny Mota with a high batting average is no surprise, seeing him with over 200 plate appearances in the first half is.  1971 was the year of the 3Dog.

The table below uses 200 plate appearances as the cut off point.

I’m sure you are now wondering how many LAD had an OPS over 1.000 in the first half. I sure was.

No surprise to see the trading partners Gary Sheffield and Mike Piazza at the top. Nor is it any shock to see the greatest offensive Dodger of all-time Cody Bellinger on the list. Piazza did the trick twice. One of my favorite all-time Dodgers Reggie Smith is right there. Wally Moon and his moon shots were flying out plenty in 1961.

Alex Wood finds home cooking to his taste

Right now Alex Wood has a career ERA at Dodger Stadium of 1.78 which would place him 6th on the all-time list for pitchers who have made at least 10 starts at Dodger Stadium.

The only Dodgers on this list are Sandy Koufax and Alex Wood. Heady company indeed. Anyone who watched J. R. Richard pitch against the Dodgers would not be surprised to see him on this list.  I never saw Curt Simmons pitch but I did see Jon Matlack and Dwight Gooden dominant the Dodgers when they pitched for the Mets.  Interesting that Jon Matlack made the cut but his more famous teammate Tom Seaver did not.  Or Jerry Koosman.  Jim O’Toole was also before my time but I do remember having a geat O’Toole baseball card. I’ll have to go find it.

Dodger notes as they take aim on the Rockies

Lots of great stuff came through the daily Dodger press release this afternoon. One of the great secrets of a Dodger broadcast is that the Dodgers provide boatloads of stats for the broadcasters to refer to during a game. You can be sure that Joe and Orel will sample many of the stats found below.

I normally would take some of these stats to write a column around but with the Dodgers so hot, there are just too many nuggets to work with, so here is the Dodger Press Release. Remember all these stats were compiled by the Dodgers for the media. I think I can release them as they were written.

Dodger Notes:

*       This is the first time in the divisional era (since 1969) that 3+ teams in the same division have all had a .615+ win percentage through games of June 22.      SOURCE: STATS, LLC

 *         The club’s last eight-game winning streak was from Aug. 7-17, 2013, when they were in the midst of a 42-8 stretch.

 *         The Dodgers have won eight consecutive games at Dodger Stadium, their most since recording 10 straight victories at home from June 17-July 5, 2016. The club is 29-10 (.744) at home this season, which is the best mark in the Major Leagues. The club is 40-11 (.784) in its last 51 games at the Ravine since Sept. 3, 2016, which is the best home record in the Majors during that span.

 *         In 20 games during the month of June, the Dodgers own the best record in the Major Leagues at 15-5 (.750).

*         The Dodgers’ +123 run differential is the best in the Major Leagues, three runs better than the Houston Astros (+117).

The Dodgers have homered in 14 straight games. The last time the Dodgers homered in 15 straight games was from June 7-22, 1977.

*       The Dodgers’ 15 homers in the Mets’ series were the most hit in a series in franchise history, besting the 14 blasts they hit at Coors Field from Sept. 25-28, 1997. 

*       Cody Bellinger extended his career-high hitting streak last night to eight games and is slashing .303/.376/.829 with 17 runs, seven doubles, 11 home runs and 20 RBI in 20 June games. Bellinger leads the Majors in home runs and slugging percentage during June and his 11 home runs this month are the most by a Dodger rookie in a single month. 

 *       Since his promotion on April 25, Bellinger leads the Majors in home runs (22) while ranking second in RBI (49) and fourth in slugging percentage (.665). 

 LONG MAY YOU SCORE RUNS: The Dodgers have scored six or more runs in each of their last six contests. That is one away from their longest streak since moving to Los Angeles:

 LA Dodgers, Most Consec Games w/ 6+ Runs – Since 1958

 Los Angeles Dodgers           7          06/26/2001 – 07/02/2001    

Los Angeles Dodgers          6          06/17/2017 – ACTIVE

Los Angeles Dodgers           6          05/17/2012 – 05/22/2012    

Seven other streaks of          6

*       The 54 runs the club has scored over that six-game stretch are the most they have tallied in a six-game span in more than 20 years, with the last 54+ run outburst coming from June 29—July 4, 1996, when they plated 56 runs against the Rockies and Padres.      SOURCE: STATS , LLC

 

Is Puig the best 8th hitter?

Much has been made about the success that Puig is having hitting out of the eight hole, which led me to wonder if Puig was the best eight hitter in baseball?

The simple answer is no. He is, however, one of the best. I used 50 PA as the criteria for this which might be too low. The table below has several interesting columns. The OPS is what that hitter is doing from the eight spot. The OPStot column is their cumulative total OPS for the season.  The PA column is the number of plate appearances hitting from the eight spot. The PAtot column is the total number of plate appearances.

This shows that while Puig has hit in the eight spot a lot, he has spent much more time in other spots in the order.

That .881 OPS by Puig is very good. Seven home runs in only 113 plate appearances is excellent. He is clearly thriving from the eight hole, but he is far from the best at it.

Kershaw 102 Game Score rides high

When it comes to game score, breaking 100 is the platinum barrier and Clayton Kershaw broke the barrier with his no-hitter against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium.

That is not surprising. What is surprising is that Ted Lilly has the second-best game score against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium. Ted Lilly!

This list has all sorts of odd names.

Odalis Perez – Odalis had five games with a game score greater than 80 in his career. This game was the second best of his career.  They were both one-hitters.

Jeff Weaver – This would be the greatest game that Jeff Weaver pitched for the Dodgers and the greatest game he would pitch while in the NL.  It was the second best game of his long career, while with the Tigers he would throw a one-hitter with eleven K’s for a game score of 94

Brian Bohanon – This would be the second best game of his career. A year later he would be pitching for the Rockies and put up a game score of 85.  Two years later his career was over. Only twice in his career did he throw a game score of 80.

It also has Alex Wood who threw one of his greatest games as a Dodger when he went eight brilliant innings against the Rockies on Sep 16th, 2015.  Obviously,  Dave Roberts wasn’t managing because Alex Wood pitched eight innings.

Alex Wood and Clayton Kershaw will be pitching this weekend. Nice timing

Grandal / Kemp lead LAD Total Base leaderboard against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium

Given how hot the Dodger offense is right now, and how badly the Rockie pitching is lately, I could easily see a scenario where this leaderboard gets updated on Monday morning.

Yazmani Grandal has the best total base game ever against the Rockies, and he did it last September. Matt Kemp is the only other Dodger to have at least a double-digit total base game against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium.

Which Dodger will crack the list this weekend? How about a dark horse candidate like Logan Forsythe?

Nolan Arenado and Troy Tulowitzki are the only Rockies with a double-digit game against the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium. Remember when Tulo was good? Shocking he was only good while a Rockie. At least the BlueJays only have to pay him $70 Million over the next four years to be one of the worst hitting shortstops in baseball. No big deal.

Talk about a rewrite

On Monday, June 19th I posted the best total base games by any Dodgers against the Mets at Dodger Stadium. At the time I was surprised to find that the Dodgers have never had a double-digit total base game with that criteria.

That Monday night Cody Bellinger tied Gary Sheffield and Jim Lefebvre with the best offensive game against the Mets at Dodger Stadium with his two home runs and single. The exact same way the other two had gotten their nine total bases.

On Tuesday night Corey Seager obliterated what Cody Bellinger did on Monday night.

This is the new total base leaderboard against the Mets at Dodger Stadium

Tied with Grandal and Garvey anyway.  Just a year ago, Grandal had his great game. Must be something in the water.

Fourteen days of glory

This is what it looks like when everyone is hitting. Enjoy it, because it rarely happens that the top of the lineup is in synch with the middle of the lineup, while still having the bottom of the lineup cleaning everything up.

Using Fangraphs once again for their fourteen-day splits:

I know it is just fourteen days, but have you ever seen a fourteen-day split table where every single hitter has a wRC+ > 100?

The long awaiting reawakening of Logan Forsythe has commenced.

Dodger offense blowing like a Santa Ana

Dodger fans have seen Dodger hot streaks before but I’m not sure they have seen this kind of hot streak.  June started off with the normal June gloom but as the weather turned hot, so have the Dodger bats.

Fueled by the greatest collection of young talent since the Piazza/Mondesi/Karros days the Dodgers have been hitting home runs at a historic rate.

I’m going to use Fangraphs to show just how hot this team is right now because they give me a fourteen-day breakdown which is the perfect time frame for this historic hot streak.

Using some advanced metrics over the last fourteen days:

  • The Dodgers are first in ISO at .291
  • The Dodgers are first in wOBA at .401
  • The Dodgers are first in wRC+ at 153
  • The Dodgers are first in Offensive WAR
  • The Dodgers are even tied for second in Defensive WAR

In two words to describe how hot the Dodgers have been.

LAD Single Season HR Leaders

With Cody Bellinger well on his way to leading the 2017 team in home runs, I thought it would be a good time to look at every single LAD single-season home run leader.

Several LAD have led their team in home runs four times. Frank Howard, Ron Cey, and Pedro Guerrero, but only Mike Piazza has done it five times.

Billy Grabarkewitz was the closest thing to a shortstop leading the team but many of 1970 appearances came as 3rd baseman.

Charlie Neal, Davey Lopes, and Jeff Kent are the only 2nd baseman to do the trick.

John Roseboro was joined by Yazmani Grandal last year as the only catchers to lead the team in home runs.

The best bar bet in Los Angeles for forty years was Len Gabrielson leading the team in 1968 with only 10 home runs.

HOF on this list includes Frank Robinson, Mike Piazza, and future HOF Adrian Beltre.

Homegrown LAD leaders were Frank Howard, Jim Lefebvre, Billy Grabarkewitz, Al Ferrera, Willie Davis, Joe Ferguson, Ron Cey, Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes, Mike Marshall, Franklin Stubbs, Eric Karros, Mike Piazza, Raul Mondesi, Adrian Beltre, Matt Kemp, and Cody Bellinger.

You could include Pedro Guerrero who was only 17 when the Dodgers acquired him from the Indians.

Between 2008 and 2015 the only Dodgers to lead the team in home runs were Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp, and Adrian Gonzalez.

Between 1992 – 2000 the only Dodgers to lead the team in home runs were Mike Piazza, Eric Karros, Raul Mondesi, and Gary Sheffield

Between 1965 – 1970 only one Dodger hit at least 20 home runs and that was Jim Lefebvre in 1966.

No Dodger has hit at least 30 home runs since Matt Kemp in 2011. I expect that will change this year.
