When leading off an inning in 2009:

The glorious:
Hanigan: .400/.489/.500/.989
Votto: .368/.400/.816/1.216

The great:
Dickerson: .373/.407/.471/.878

The good:
Phillips: .241/.353/.397/.749

The not-so-good:
Hernandez: .254/.329/.333/.662

The ugly:
Taveras: .264/.298/.320/.618
Hairston: .250/.305/.421/.726
Nix: .218/.283/.509/.792
Bruce: .169/.239/.354/.593

The your-career-is-over:
Gonzalez: .159/.178/.205/.382





All of these players have 40+ at-bats in this area. The other players have 20 or less so I didn't list them.

Nix has almost an .800 OPS leading off-- how is that "ugly," especially considering Phillips' .749 is in the "good" category?

Note that Hairston's .726 is almost at .749 as well...

Because of his OBP.

.283 OBP for Nix when leading off is ugly. That is the job of the guy who leads off an inning....get on base.

Then why even include SLG and OPS in the opening post?

I didn't see GIDP's post when I did mine, or I wouldn't have posted it. Wasn't trying to rub anything in.

But, to answer your question, because someone might want to know, and it tells you also if they are adding extra-base hits to their plate appearances in those situations.
