  1. If you cherry-pick further, you realize that in the 30th-31st, he went 4 for 8 in those 2 games. Before those 2 games, he was hitting .081 in August.

  2. Good article, I know Coors has helped Olivo have the best year of his career, but it’s not helping Mr. Ianetta.

    WHAT is going on there?! Very good season in ’08, lived up to potential, though he was going to improve. BABIP has gone from .311-.245-.213, LD rate from 21%-16%-12%. While that explains a lot of lag in BA (.264-.228-.204), what is causing this?

    In ’09 his FB% was 52, up from 41, and this year it’s 45. In ’09 his GB% was 38… this year, 42, ’08, 32.

    His numbers are very, very, confusing.

  3. not sure sept has started better. on sep 1 he threw the ball into LF trying to catch darren ford going to third. ford popped up and scored the go-ahead run in the 8th inning.

  4. We need one of these for Brennan Boesch, .450 OPS over the last 7 weeks.

  5. I know the intent of this article was not to rehash Iannetta, but…
    Sometimes I wish managers were less p.c., because it would clear up a lot of confusion. If Jim Tracy was able to speak his mind and really tell the media what the the heck he thinks is wrong with Iannetta it would make a lot of people happier. When a manager trots out a guy having a career year that is worse than the career rates of the benched guy, it makes you wonder. It has really crossed from me being a fan-boy of Iannetta to seriously wondering what Tracy is thinking. Heck, if the guy said the only stat he looks at is batting average and that’s what the decision is based on, I’d disagree with it, but I’d be a lot less confused.

    Now if you excuse me, I’m going to reread my posts complaining about Scioscia and Torre burying Brandon Wood and Andy LaRoche on their respective benches, thank you very much. :(

  6. Yeah… I’m saving it until after the season. Maybe. Don’t wanna be too vindictive, it’s a bad quality I have. But I’ll just sneak it in here, especially in light of my claim way back duing Boesch’s hot streak that Raburn should have been getting at least some of Boesch’s playing time, when Raburn had done nothign on the year:

    Current wOBA for entire 2010 season:

    Boesch: .339
    Raburn: .341

    Regression is a cruel mistress
