The Angels have grounded into 18 double plays in 12 games, one behind Major League -leading Detroit, and an even 1.5 GIDPs per contest. At this rate we'd end up with 243 twin-killings on the season, which I'm sure would be an all-time record, though strangely I can't find such stats online (a little help, please?).
Here are our 2008 totals projected, plus the league-leaders in recent years & how the Angels have done. As you can see, the Scioscia-era Angels were good at avoiding 'em in the past, but have been ticking up the last year & change.
2008 243 Angels (estimated)
2007 154 Mariners & Cards (Angels 146)
2006 170 Choakland (Angels 126)
2005 155 Twinkies (Angels 125)
2004 157 Yanks (Angels 123)
2003 158 Brewers (Angels 125)
2002 150 Yanks (Angels 105)
2001 151 L'Expos (Angels 109)
2000 159 Tejas (Angels 126)
1999 156 Royals & Rays (Angels 135)
So is this a problem? Yes! Do I have a solution? No!
Here, by the way, are the per-600 plate appearances averages of GIDPs for our starting lineup. As you can see, spots 3 through 7 are a double play waiting to happen, and the speedy young DP combo of Kendrick & Aybar are the worst offenders of all. Though GMJ is NOT:
