Your Cleveland Indians:
#1 in Pitcher Ground Ball to Fly Ball Ratio (1.00 GB/FB)
#14 in Pitcher Strike Out % (13.4 SO%)
#14 in Pitcher Base-on-Balls % (11.3 BB%)
I think you can all figure out where we are ranked in strike out to base-on-balls ratio.
The Better Than Last Year:
#8 (and very close to League Avg.) in Total Zone Runs Above Average (1.7 Rtot).
Some More Good:
#4 in Batter Base-on-Balls % (10.3%)
Some more Yuck:
#13 in Batter Home Run % (1.4%).... Only the Milton Bradely Apologists are worse.
#13 in Batter Strike Out % (21.0%).
So in summation....I got nothing. Maybe our groundballer staff can't strike out guys, but what if they at least focused on not walking batters? The hitting is definetly set up to work the count, but are we simply unlucky with our Balls-In-Play, or is it a lack of punch? (Linedrive % is around 20% so there's that.)
