Friday Morning Figures

I apologize for not posting these in a while. But did you really want to see it in July?

There was some discussion of Team MVP on Yuda's Gameday Chat last night. In my view, there is no contest: Chief Cordero gets it. The ERV numbers bear this out. Back in June, Johnson and Cordero were neck and neck for WV lead. But Johnson got hurt, and Chief remained consistent, and he has opened up a huge lead (on that he can lose quickly if he blows some close games). Patterson has also made a run for the lead, too. The other valuable players are Hernandez and Schneider.

It seems to me the closer would get this for most teams. Can you take a look at some of the clubs we've seen a lot of (say, Philadelphia) and see if any of them have a WV leader other than their closer?

I wonder if Guzman could hit -100 ERV by the end of the year. It's a lofty goal, but if anyone could suck enought to do it, it's Cristian Guzman.

At this point, given his -60 runs, you'd have to say this team would at least be 4 or 5 games better in the standings with another anemic bat such as Jamey Carroll having been the every day shortstop.

Cordero leads in WV not only because he pitches in high leverage situations, but also because he is damn close to the overall RV lead. I would guess that most closers do not have that much RV. Also, remember that Cordero's high WV also has to do with the number of one-run wins we had earlier in the season. Most closers do not have this many one run games so would not have as much WV.
