Team stats …  

I decided to do a large sample because I had a few minutes and compare it to about two weeks ago …
 
ISO (Isolated Power): .SLG - .BA = .ISO
1. Colorado: .181
2. Chicago: .180
3. Philadelphia: .176 (July 2: .183; down -.007)
4. St. Louis: .176 (July 2: .171; up +.005)
5. Atlanta: .168 (July 2: .160; up +.008)
6. New York Mets: .164 (July 2: .157; up +.007)
7. Cincinnati: .161
8. Arizona: .160
9. San Francisco: .157
10. Florida: .153
11. Houston: .151
12. Los Angeles: .150
13. Pittsburgh: .144
14. Milwaukee: .138
15. Montreal: .131
16. San Diego: .123 (July 2: .118; up +.005) 

 

What’s caught my eye since I did this last has been the dramatic rises of Atlanta and the Mets.  They look like the teams that have had the largest jumps in the last two weeks: the Braves have improved their ISO power by .008, and the Mets .007 …

The Phillies have lost some ground, declining from .183 to .176 … What I think is remarkable about that piece of information is the fact that this .007 decline for the Phils occurred when the team was playing two weeks worth of games at home
 
GPA (Gross Productive Average): (1.8 * .OBP + .SLG) / 4 = .GPA
1. Colorado: .269
2. San Francisco: .267
3. St. Louis: .267
4. Philadelphia: .266 (July 2: .269; down -.003)
5. Chicago: .260
6. Atlanta: .256 (July 2: .251; up +.005)
7. Houston: .256
8. Cincinnati; .255
9. Los Angeles: .254
10. Florida: .251 (July 2: .250; up +.001)
11. New York: .250 (July 2: .245; up +.005)

12. Pittsburgh: .249
13. San Diego: .248
14. Milwaukee: .247
15. Arizona: .245
16. Montreal: .226 (July 2: .228; down -.002)
 

Atlanta is climbing in the ratings, largely because J.D. Drew is still hitting so well (curse him!) and Chipper Jones is starting to break out of his season-long slump.  I still think that the Mets are the bigger threat to the Phils than the Braves because of their pitching.
 

I fear the Fish, but I have to admit that they look terrible these days.   
 
Next up: the Braves.  They need to win to Atlanta. They need to put someone away.

I was just browsing various blogs as I was doing a search on the word poster, and I just wanted to say that I really like what you've done with your blog, even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. 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.
