LAD 14 game splits – to much good stuff

The Dodgers have a ten game winning streak and have won 13 of 14 games so let us quickly see how they have gone about it. I have a feeling that Cody Bellinger and Alex Wood are heavily involved.

Dave Cameron of Fangraphs has a new column in which he likens the Dodgers to the 2016 Cubs.  He does a bit of gushing and also points out that the Dodgers are doing all this even though the rotation has had its share of problems.

And then there’s the pitching. Clayton Kershaw has already set a career-high with 17 home runs allowed, Rich Hill has thrown 40 low-quality innings while struggling with blisters and command issues, Julio Urias struggled before they found out his shoulder was shot, Kenta Maeda lost his rotation spot, and Hyun-Jin Ryu is giving up nearly two home runs per nine innings pitched… and yet they still lead the majors in pitching WAR (+12.7). There’s an incredible disconnect between their overall results and the number of things that have gone wrong for LA’s pitching staff; if I read you the list of issues their pitchers have faced in the first half, you’d probably think it was the collective reason the team was playing .500 ball.

Using Fangraphs splits:

Sabremetric Splits:

Six hitters with a wRC+ over 190!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah, I think the exclamation mark is well deserved here.  As Chase starts to struggle, Logan is starting to pick it up.

Have you ever seen an ISO over .600 even in a 14 game split?

I guess the Grandal walk rate jumps out. For a player known for patience, he has thrown it away over the past fourteen games.

    RBI don’t impress me until you have 20 (!!) in 10 games.

    I think Barnes is my favorite part tbh
