    日本へ来てからほぼ毎年3割30本くらい打って100打点以上稼いでいるので、とても確実に成績を残してきているように見られますが、そこから一つ掘り下げた打撃成績のOBP/SLG/OPS(出塁率/長打率/出塁率+長打率)を見てみますと、2003年のピークの373/616/989 から確実に右肩下がり傾向を維持してきて2006年には289/449/738 まで落ちました。そこで昨季突然メイクミラクルしてしまい、なんと371/569/940 な2007年だったのです。

    Alex Ramirez

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 January 23日 Wednesday

    I’m not sure what to make of the sudden resurgence of the former Swallows star and now a new Giants cog Alex Ramirez’s career. He has been superficially consistent through his NPB career hitting around .300 with around 30 HRs and 100+ RBIs every year.

    But his OBP/SLG/OPS has been seeing a steady decline since his peak in 2003 of 373/616/989 dipping down to 289/449/738 in 2006. But then suddenly we saw him hit 371/569/940 at the age of 32. I wouldn’t be surprised if his 2007 numbers were more an exception rather than a return to his peak form, and to see his numbers end up being closer to 2006 rather than 2007 figures. Then again, Yomiuri can afford to take that gamble…


    Wonder how much Ramirez will change his post-HR “performance” from his Swallows versions like this:
