SI Second Half Performance Stats
I was reading my newest issue of Sports Illustrated and decided to share some stats they compiled on players/teams with best/worst performances after the All-Star break. I'm not going to list them all, I'll just pull out the Reds related ones.
Over the last four seasons....increase/decrease in teams' winning percentages:
Reds fifth worst in winning % falloff- .480 Before Break, .428 After Break = -.052 Decrease in winning percentage
Over the last four seasons....increase/decrease in pitchers' ERA:
Eric Milton at #10 in largest decrease in ERA - 5.62 Before Break, 4.82 After Break = -0.80 Decrease in ERA
FYI, Complete listings for both:
5 Best winning %'s after break (Astros, Athletics, Devil Rays, Twins, Giants)
5 Worst....(Orioles, Mariners, Tigers, Mets, Reds)
Top 10 Pitchers in Decreasing ERA
- Take what you want out of this. At least we can be optimistic that Eric Milton will pitch better from here on out!
