DateQuestionAnswer
2010-01-14 16:00:00 (link to chat)The Brian Giles meltdown from a .319 EQA to .201 last year has to be one of the largest ever doesn't it?
(paulbellows from Calgary)
That's one for the database to ponder, but the number that sticks out is that .214 BABIP. In our "roundtable" this week on hitter BABIP, I pointed out that some things stay consistent for hitters, and some do not, but BABIP overall for hitters is somewhat stable. Giles fell so far so fast that I have to wonder if Giles's half-season (yes, I know about the bum knee) was partly the result of a run of bad luck over what ended up being a small-ish sample size. If he does retire, I can at least stop having bad flashbacks to the Ricardo Rincon era in Cleveland whenever I hear Giles's name mentioned. (Russell A. Carleton)
