LOB Leaders week 3


Angels' stats through Apr 25. All this does is compare the two numbers and give you a ratio that tells you how many runners a hitter will leave on base for every run he drives in. Other things like GIDP aren't factored in but could be if anyone has the time to do that.

                                                LOB   RBI   Ratio

Aybar 26 3      8.67
Abreu 37 10    3.70
Hunter 31 7    4.43
Matsui 35 11    3.18
Morales 32 16    2.00
Rivera 27 8    3.37
Kendrick 28 9    3.11
Izturis 12 8    1.50
Wood 26 2  13.00
Mathis 17 3    5.67
Napoli 11 2    5.50
Evans 1
Wilson 2
Willits 3



As a team the Angels have stranded 288 while driving in 79, their team LOB ratio is 3.64 which is pretty close to the AL average which is 3.45 based on 3813 LOB and 1105 RBI. The best LOB ratio belongs to the Rays who are at 2.32 while the worst are the Orioles at 4.86. Coincidentally (or not) these two teams have the best and worst W-L records in the league. However, Det at 10-9 has the second worst LOB ratio at 4.23 while KC is 7-11 and has the 4th best LOB ratio at 3.24.

Next are the guys who've stranded the most runners. Half of them have driven in a lot of runs too though. To compare, the highest Angels LOB totals last year came in August when Juan Rivera stranded 52 runners and Bobby Abreu stranded 50.

The next group of guys are the worst so far at leaving runners on, in no particular order:

Avila, Det 19 0

Beckham, Chi 24 3
Pierzynski, Chi 25 2
LaPorta, Cle 34 1
Ortiz, Bos 33 4
Markakis, Bal 22 3
Lugo, Bal 18 0

The last group are the best performers, those who strand the fewest runners for every one they drive in. Maicer continues to do well and Kendry is heating up.
