    2008.6.10 プロ野球の成績

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 June 11日 Wednesday

    交流戦も3分の2の16試合を消化し、楽天と阪神が強く11勝ずつしています。楽天は交流戦1位の得失点差+30なので、期待通りの活躍で、阪神は相変わらずの強さです。

    北京五輪の候補選手にGG.佐藤と帆足(西武)、吉見(中日)と、渡辺(阪神)が追加されましたね。去年から打ち続けているGGはもはや必須でしょうが、他の選手はどれほど戦力アップに繋がるのか?持っていかれるチームにとっては痛いのですが…

    今週も忙しいので、打撃と投手の成績だけアップしておきます。FIPとOPSについてはこちらを

    打撃成績 (2008.6.10)

    内川(横浜)が規定打席に到達して、OPS上位にも台頭しました、いつまで続くかな…?北京ではGGー青木ー稲葉の外野になるのかな?

    投手成績 (2008.6.10)

    ルイスがどれだけ広島の3位争いに貢献しているのかがよく伺えます。田中マー君と岩隈との差も防御率や勝敗の数が示すほどではありません。小松はオリックスで孤軍奮闘してるみたいですね。川上憲伸も完全に怪我(体調不良?)からカムバックしていて、ここ3試合で8、7、7回ずつ投げており、失点もそれぞれ1,3,1点ずつと良い成績です。投手には困らないでしょう、日本代表。

    2008.6.10 NPB Pitching and Batting Leaders

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 June 11日 Wednesday

    We’re 2/3 of the way through interleague play with 16 games played, and the Eagles are on top of the interleague standings tied with the Tigers with 11-5 records. The eagles had strong numbers in runs scored and runs allowed heading into interleague, so this is no fluke, expect the strong performance of the Eagles to continue past the interleague period.

    Also, Hoshino, manager and GM for Team Japan at Beijing Olympics, has added 4 players to the list candidates for the Olympic team and they are G.G. Sato and Hoashi (both Lions), Yoshimi (Dragons), and Watanabe (Tigers). Sato and Watanabe have both shown that their great performances last season weren’t by chance, and among the 70+ players already named as candidates, many are off to slow starts or injured which prompted this announcement. The final team will be announced in July… but the first game that counts is on 13 August. I expect some changes made between the team is announced to the opening game against Cuba.

    Anyways, just a partial update, only the batting and pitching leaders this week.

    Batting leaders (2008.6.10)

    Familiar faces up top, and we see a new name in the table in the league leading batter Uchikawa(!) of Yokohama who sports a handsome .395 batting average at the moment after getting enough playing time to qualify. Perhaps a Sato, Aoki (missed time with injury, returned to lineup recently), and Inaba outfield in Beijing?

    Pitching leaders (2008.6.10)

    Lewis is doing an incredible job for the Carp who are 1.5 games behind the Giants for 3rd place and the last playoff spot. Komatsu is pitching pretty well for the Buffaloes too even if he’s not getting the run or defensive support. Hoashi has a sparkling 1.55 ERA but his FIP is 3.20 suggesting he’s gotten benefits of both good luck and defense, still wouldn’t be a bad choice for the Olympics (though, he’ll probably hurt Seibu more than benefit Japan). Tanaka is pitching in the shadows of resurgent Iwakuma this year, but he’s contributing nearly as much as his teammate to the Eagles’ success when you look beyond the won-loss record and the ERA. Kawakami has returned, he’s pitched 8, 7, and 7 innings in his last 3 starts allowing 1, 3, and 1 run each time out.
