Ethier Rifling a Variety of Pitches
2008-09-10 08:53
by Jon Weisman
Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Hello, friends.  Here is a chart listing all of Andre Ethier’s plate appearances while batting ahead of Manny Ramirez.  I’m not interested in making any sweeping judgments here, but rather just offering up some data.

  • Ethier is averaging 4.5 pitches per plate appearance while batting in front of Ramirez. Though it could be a reflection of patience that increased as the season progressed, this figure is higher than Ethier’s season average of 4.17 pitches per plate appearance, which is the highest among Dodger regulars.
  • Of the 221 pitches Ethier has seen in front of Manny, he has taken 38 percent for balls. He is averaging nearly two balls per plate appearance.
  • The percentage is almost exactly the same – about 38 percent – for the number of offspeed pitches Ethier has seen. (Note: I counted cut fastballs as offspeed pitches, which technically might not be correct.  I did so because I really just wanted to separate the traditional fastball from other options.  In any case, there were only a handful of cutters among the 221 pitches total.)
  • In one-third of his plate appearances, the deciding pitch was not a fastball.
  • When the final pitch of the at-bat is a fastball, Ethier is 12 for 25 with four doubles, two triples, a homer and eight walks. When the final pitch of the at-bat is not a fastball, Ethier is 9 for 16 with four doubles and two homers (no walks).

    Again, I’m not drawing huge conclusions from this – I would just like to ensure that Ethier gets his fair share of credit for his tremendous play of late.  He’s not living off fastballs down the middle.  He’s seeing a good mix of pitches, in all locations, and to the Dodgers’ great fortune, he’s aplombing them.

    Btw, in that picture of Ethier in the dreads that SOSG posted, it looks more like he's an Orthodox Jewish man with payot. Either way, it's good stuff.

    Nice work Jon.

    Question, if Saito and possibly Furcal come off the 60-Day DL, who comes off the 40 man?

    DFA Ozuna? Jones with phantom knee injury to 60-day? DY's "oblique" acts up to 60-day?

    0 Facsinating stuff Jon.

    From last thread, I am not saying Martin is the 4th best catcher in the NL West just asking a question the chnaces of it happening next year. Iannetta could be very good next year, Sandoval OPS'ed over 1.000 this year in the minors, and a Snyder repeat performance could make it happen.

    2008-09-10 10:46:40
    11.   JJ42
    I think Ozuna would be DFA'd for sure but it's the second one that I'm not sure of. I think they keep JJJ and that they've stuck with Sweeney this long, I doubt it would be him. I didn't think about Orenduff.

    I know some of you guys aren't into fantasy baseball but I traded Broxton for Ethier at the deadline not only has it propelled the Dodgers into first place it has done the same for my team the 'pitbulls'(after bills).

    BIG UPS to my boy Ethier keep it up. I saw somewhere that Ethier's avg in Sept. coming into this year was .197 I remember he played through that shoulder injury his rookie year those numbers might be skewed.

    13.   Disabled List
    About the "Repko in for Ramirez"'s... In any of those three cases, was Jason was called in as a PH for Manny after Ethier's at-bat? If so, the "Manny Effect" we're looking for is still applicable.

    Probably doesn't matter much. But that's still a heckuva job going through all that data, Jon.

    Here is an amazing stat. Since trade deadline:

    Manny: .395/.491/.744
    Ethier: .371/.443/.750

    That is a really detailed chart for Ethier, thanks Jon. When I argue that lineup protection has an actual effect, I'm more concerned with pitch location rather than pitch type. Presumably most pitchers in the big leagues can throw all of their pitches for strikes on a fairly consistent basis. Not only does lineup protection affect pitch location, it also affects the effort given into each individual pitch IMO. I think Ethier is seeing more "fat" pitches on neutral counts or when he is ahead in the count as a result of hitting in front of Manny.

    This hot streak reminds me of his July/2006 when people started talking about him as a potential batting champion.

    In his debut season of 2006 he hit over 300 in every month except Sept. In 2007 he only hit over 300 in one month. I didn't realize how bad he was in June this year.

    He certainly seems to be a player who thrives in a full time role where he knows he will be playing every day. I don't know if it is mental and he relaxes or if it is physical in that he gets in a groove with extended at bats. Either way, Ethier is the bomb.

    So my wife and I are driving to Pittsburgh to see the game on Wednesday night. It looks like the rotation plays out to see Billingsley pitch! Any idea if the off day this week will jumble the rotation or do you think it's going to play out like it is?

    I didn't think I was going to make it to any Dodger games this year since all the surrounding road games were "bad dates" but my wife just sorta decided it would be a fun trip so boom, we're going! Woot!

    Broxton threw 24 pitches in the ninth last night; I counted 5 sliders.

    So, 80% fastballs. That's a lot, but not as many as I would have guessed.

    it is unbelievable to me, though I know its true, that Martin has the best obp exc for Manny (and Furcal). I hope Furcal can get healthy because a leadoff batter with high OBP is really needed at this point. If he and Saito get back to form, the Dodgers could win it all, in spite of a shakey starting rotation.

    Dusty Baker, saddened by the loss of Brandon Phillips to a broken finger, has opted to start Andy Phillips at second. Perhaps he thinks that as long as the last name is the same, he will get the same kind of production.
    2008-09-10 11:20:15
    34.   underdog
    Just the presence of Furcal in the line-up alone makes it one that scores more runs than you think. That said, Jones-ierre can't be the answer in CF unless Jones suddenly finds a magic elixir that sends him back to 2004.

    25 Just find idiot friends, I'm going to make $50 with my buddy that's an Indian fan because Bills has a lower ERA than Fausto.
    I already have a $100 bet in line for next year with my buddy who's a Red Sox fan that Bills will have a lower ERA than Dice K.

    Thats easy money.

    Andruw Jones has a 40-35 record while starting for the Dodgers and I won't quibble that he has done nothing to garner those 40 wins. However as we look to unearth anything positive about his season, he has been extremely effective as a bench player. As a sub he has a robust 1.130 OPS. If he can get two more plate appearances he will be at 1,000,000 per plate appearance as a sub. Now that is getting bang for your buck.

    Can't say enough about how much fun it has been to watch DeWitt play 2nd base since returning. For a guy who came in with a shaky defensive rep, he has been a revelation.

    36 Actually there's probably no way the Dodgers re-sign Casey Blake if they sign Furcal and Manny, too. But even if it's this:

    SS-Furcal

    RF-Ethier
    LF-Manny
    C-Martin
    1B-Loney
    3B-DeWitt

    Is Pat Burrell a free agent this off-season? If so, and the Dodgers feel they need more offense from the outfield than Pierre/Jones can provide, why not look at Burrell rather than Manny? He's 5 years younger, will put up worse but not much worse numbers than Manny in the first year, and should be cheaper.
    2008-09-10 11:33:30
    45.   Icaros
    Furcal hasn't been injury-free in two years. When he played hurt last year, he was about as good as Pierre. I'm all for taking a one-year flyer on bringing him back, but if he's the key to next year's offense, that's a really unsteady gamble.

    42 My hunch is that you can collect your winnings and buy an all-you-can eat ticket to a game this year at Dodger Stadium.

    Or you could use it to pay for a nice dinner in West L.A.

    19 Since Billingsley is set to pitch Friday and there are no off-days until the 22nd, he will pitch Wednesday night in Pittsburgh.

    I agree but if you start with Furcal and end up with Hu/DeJesus, you at least give yourself a chance at a dynamo. If you just start with Hu/DeJesus in 2009 the offense won't be getting much from the SS position. Even a Hu who can see is no match offensively for a healthy Furcal. And DeJesus is not ready yet.

    Molly, I'd say the Vince Young drama is not much different than Juan Pierre's whining.

    Let's put it this way, there's not a lot of empathy for the guy in Nashville.

    Also, if you have allergies (seems like I remember something about that) now is not the time to come to Nashville.

    If you re-read my original comment, you'll see that "I'm all for taking a one-year flyer on bringing him back." I just don't think Furcal is enough to warrant entering 2009 with Pierre or Jones as starters.

    Cubs bloggers aren't too happy with Lou Pinella this week, especially after he had Geo Soto bunt with a man on. He bunted into a double play. In the Yahoo live box score it said "G. Soto unknown into double play pitcher to shortstop to first, F. Pie out at second."

    My sister, a high school teacher in the east bay, used to complain about the number of, er, cracks, she had to see on a daily basis with the oversized baggy pants look. She finally gave up, or maybe less kids are wearing those these days, but it stopped being funny for her after about the 2nd day of seeing 16 year olds walking around with their hands around their pants waist, saying "That's what belts are for, for god's sakes!"
