Fantasy Freestyle: Sifting Through Second-Half FIPs

8

Bret Sayre

A closer look at the 12 pitchers who fared best during the summer in the statistics they could directly control.

As the playoffs are coming to an end in a fashion that seems to get crazier and crazier by the game, we continue to use this opportunity to look back on the 2013 season to see what we can learn going forward. Two of the biggest areas to explore for uncovering undervalued assets are hidden improvements over the course of the previous season and digging beyond the raw stats to the more predictive ones. In this exercise, we’re going to combine the two to see if anything interesting is uncovered when using FIP to determine more of a true performance level after the dust cleared from the All-Star festivities in New York.

There were 12 pitchers who posted a FIP of 2.75 or lower in the second half of the 2013 season. Here they are in reverse order:

Punk Hits: A Love (Hate) Letter From Arizona

Ian Miller

Food and Loafing at spring training.

If you set out to design a place that I would hate, it would look a lot like Arizona.

It’s got natural beauty, sure, but it’s usually way too hot, or too cold, to enjoy. Everything is spread out, Houston- or Los Angeles-style; you have to drive everywhere to get anywhere. And once you get there, odds are “there” is a prefab thing conceived by a team of hospitality management experts.

Episode 70: "World Series Game Two/Protective Gear for Pitchers"

Read the full article...

Madison Bumgarner reprises his memorable 2010 World Series start, killing Detroit softly to take a 2-0 series lead.

In Game One, we got a blowout, which is another way of saying we got one half of a pitcher’s duel. In Game Two, we got the whole duel. Both starters got through their first six innings unscathed. Both starters' lines showed fewer baserunners allowed than innings pitched. Both starters watched Andy Pettitte when they were younger and decided to steal that thing he does with his glove before each pitch.

A flashback to that first time Madison Bumgarner pitched well in the World Series.

While looking toward the future with our comprehensive slate of current content, we'd also like to recognize our rich past by drawing upon our extensive (and mostly free) online archive of work dating back to 1997. In an effort to highlight the best of what's gone before, we'll be bringing you a weekly blast from BP's past, introducing or re-introducing you to some of the most informative and entertaining authors who have passed through our virtual halls. If you have fond recollections of a BP piece that you'd like to nominate for re-exposure to a wider audience, send us your suggestion.

Madison Bumgarner's second World Series start was a success, but his first may have been even better. John Perrotto recounted Bumgarner's Game Four start in the 2010 World Series in the piece reprinted below, which was originally published as a "World Series Prospectus" column on November 1st, 2010.

After another surprising Barry Zito gem and an even more surprising Justin Verlander implosion, the Tigers and Doug Fister try to even the series in Game Two.

No matter how Game One turns out in any series, Game Two is always described as pivotal. This Game Two figures to be no different. The Tigers need to win, especially after seeing their ace Justin Verlander fall in what appeared to be a decidedly lopsided battle. If Detroit loses Game Two, expect to start hearing about how Game Three is of the “must-win” variety.

As it turns out, pitching from the stretch is not a panacea for what ails Tim Lincecum.

Playoff Prospectus: NLDS Game Two Preview: Reds at Giants

Daniel Rathman

Can the Giants strike back at home behind Madison Bumgarner in the second game of their series?

A wild series opener, in which the Reds used two middle-inning homers and some eighth-inning insurance to overcome the loss of starting pitcher Johnny Cueto, portends more excitement in Game Two. Here are the PECOTA odds and projected starting lineups for tonight’s contest:

The A's get the save of the year, while the Angels win a made-up mascot contest. Clearly, the A's won the day.

Two of the best young lefties in the game faced off earlier this week. Doug breaks down the matchup.

Clayton Kershaw dominated the rival Giants last season, going 5-0 with a 1.07 ERA and a 49:8 strikeout-to-walk ratio in six starts and 42 innings, including a perfect four-for-four in head-to-head battles with San Francisco ace Tim Lincecum. Kershaw has held the Giants to a sub-2.00 ERA again in 2012, though he had come up on the short end of the decision in two of his three starts against them to Monday's match-up with Madison Bumgarner. It was the first meeting for two young southpaws who will likely be dueling out west for years to come.

The numbers for the two pitchers are remarkably similar this season (see table), with Kershaw continuing to make his own case against DIPS theory by leading the NL in hit rate for the third time in four seasons, playing in front of a Dodger defense that ranks eighth in the majors in Defensive Efficiency. The L.A. ace has maintained a sub-.280 BABIP in each of the last three seasons, and his current mark of .268 would qualify as a career-best. Bumgarner entered the season with a career BABIP over .300, but his 2012 mark is even lower than Kershaw's in spite of the ninth-ranked gloves of the Giants.
