Re: Strike out = to any other out?
Riddle me this. How do you explain the following splits for Dunn in 2004?
With runners on base, his split was .265/.423/.527/.950
With RISP .239/.438/.514/.952
On second base only .237/.517/.316/.833
On first and second .318/.424/.636/1.070
RISP w/ 2 out .264/.459/.556/1.015
What do you make of the fact that there's such a discrepancy between runners on 2nd as opposed to runners on 1st and 2nd? How can that be? What is it about the "situation" of having a runner being on first base that all of the sudden makes him so much better than if a runner is only on second? Explain that one to me.
Also, did you take a look at RISP with 2 outs? Why is that so different that his normal RISP numbers? Is there something about the situation that makes it easier to hit with 2 outs as opposed to 0 or 1 out? If all situations are so different to hit in, tell me what makes these situations so different.
