Ex-Twins Stats

As we enter the final month of the season, let's check in with some old friends....

This time, I've included VORP (Value Over Replacement-level Player), a statistic kept at Baseball Prospectus which measures
"The number of runs contributed beyond what a replacement-level player at the same position would contribute if given the same percentage of team plate appearances." Or, innings pitched.


You'll note right away that Eric Milton is having a brutal season by any measure, but when you get down to reading Cristian Guzman's -20.2 VORP, keep in mind that by that particular measure he rates as absolutely the worst regular player in the majors this year.

E. Milton (Cin): 7-12, 6.21 ERA, -16.1 VORP
M. Redman (Pit): 5-14, 4.89 ERA, 12.1 VORP
K. Rogers (Tex): 11-7, 3.15 ERA, 40.7 VORP
L. Hawkins (SF): 1-5, 3.52 ERA, 7.3 VORP
Guardado (Sea): 1-1, 1.81 ERA, 29/31 Sv, 16.0 VORP
T. Jones (Fla): 1-4, 1.20 ERA, 32/34 Sv, 28.0 VORP
A. Fultz (Phi): 3-0, 2.25 ERA, 19.0 VORP
H. Carrasco (Was): 3-3, 2.13 ERA, 18.9 VORP
J. Baldwin (Balt): 0-2, 3.65 ERA, 8.8 VORP

S. Greisinger (Atl): 0-0, 3.60 ERA, 1.1 VORP (Released)


D. Ortiz (Bos): .294/.389/.587, 61.3 VORP
D. Mientkiewicz (NYM): .247/.330/.428, 7.0 VORP
A. Pierzynski (CWS): .265/.315/.445, 16.8 VORP
C. Koskie (Tor): .249/.334/.412, 7.2 VORP
C. Guzman (Was): .194/.231/.273, -20.2 VORP
T. Walker (Cubs): .303/.353/.477, 24.9 VORP
C. Blake (Cle): .248/.310/.433, 8.5 VORP
M. Lawton (NYY): .265/.364/.411, 21.8 VORP
D. Miller (Mil): .254/.318/.387, 11.5 VORP
M. Restovich (Pitt): .257/.322/.410, 2.2 VORP
D. Mohr (Col): .215/.276/.489, 1.4 VORP
B. Kielty (Oak): .261/.351/.382, 9.3 VORP
C. Allen (Tex): .283/.304/.340, -0.8 VORP
J. Offerman (NYM): .221/.295/.337, -1.1 VORP
C. Gomez (Balt): .287/.354/.357, 4.4 VORP
Q. McCracken (Ari): .230/.309/.289, -2.7 VORP
H. Blanco (Cubs): .236/.274/.374, 0.2 VORP
J. Valentin (Cin): .291/.380/.557, 22.3 VORP
C. Moeller (Mil): .208/.260/.339, -2.4 VORP
D. Ardoin (Col): .231/.295/.340, -1.3 VORP
D. Hocking (KC): .222/.326/.222, -1.0 VORP


MINORS

M. Kinney (SF, AAA): 7-7, 4.88 ERA, 1.41 WHIP

J. Roa (Pitt, AAA): 1-1, 6.05 ERA (DL)
Rowland-Smith (Sea, AA): 5-7, 4.44 ERA, 1.51 WHIP
T. Fiore (Bal, AAA): 9-4, 3.56 ERA, 1.29 WHIP
A. Johnson (Oak, AAA): 7.36 ERA, 1.57 WHIP, 14.2 IP

I didn't think that -20.2 VORP was even humanly possible. This is an historic season!

You could count Luis Rivas as an ex-Twin.

Seth Greisinger pitched at least one game for the Braves.

I must say I'm surprised that Fultzy has any VORP.

It makes sense that Blanco has a 0.2 VORP, he would seem to be the RP in that equation, probably with a better arm and worse bat.

Hocking is definietly the Mythical RP.

AMR: that's right. Thanks. Greisinger pitched 1 game for the Braves in June, allowing 2 runs on 7 hits and a walk, with 2 K's, in 5 IP. A few days later, when Eddie Perez came off the DL, they DFA'd Seth. The club released him in July, although he had a 3.01 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in 16 starts at AAA Richmond. Weird.

It doesn't look like he's signed with another organization.

I appreciate your postings, and your blog is a good example of how a blog should be done. I've only just recently started a Posters website - feel free to visit it when you get a chance if you wish. Much success, antonio.

Hi there blog owner! I am searching blogs to find information and sources to help with my website:http://www.horse-lover-gift-ideas-central.com/collector_plate.html My site is fairly new about 8 months old and have a google pr of 3 and get about 50 people a day to visit. My site has modern home decor and is all affiliate merchandise.
This is a new frontier for my wife and I and don't have very much experience but a friend suggested searching blogs to get ideas about how people sale and also what kind of information they offer their customers and clients. We are begining to make some good money selling modern home decor related articles but I also want to offer my customers some quality information to go along with good deals. If you make it to my site and can offer some constructive critisizm I will take it into consideration or if you have some ideas it will be greatly appreciated. Remember we are on a budget and we do all the work ourselves.

Best Regards,

One of the better results I saw from my fasting experience was that I have more self control over my eating habits. I have always been a binge type of eater. After my fast, I felt like I could restrain myself easier. It is proberbly a mental attribute. I mean I can go without eating for 7 days then I sure can keep myself from eating something I shouldn't.
