Phillies Stat Notes: September 16th, 2013

The Phillies still have a shot at a worst-10 record and a protected draft pick. In addition, interesting and enlightening facts about Jimmy Rollins, Carlos Ruiz, Mike Trout, and more.

Phillies Stat Notes: September 6, 2013

What the Phils need to do to secure a protected 1st round pick in 2014, where does their current lack of walking (or the bullpen's walking too many) fit in recent history, and who's hot, who's cold?

Michael Martinez: A Stat Oddity

Martinez is on track to accomplish something that no Phillie, and very few in the history of baseball, have ever done. And as one might guess, it's not a good thing.

Phillies and milestones -- an update

When will Jimmy Rollins become the Phillies' all-time hits leader? About at bats? plate appearances? Additional milestones for Chase Utley and several others.

Phillies Stat Notes -- August 12, 2013

Will Manuel finally get his 1,000th win tonight? Will Rollins take over the Phillies all-time doubles lead? Can the Phillies lose enough to get the 4th pick in next year's draft?

Phillies Stat Notes - July 30, 2013

Playoff possibilities are mostly academic at this point, due in large part to a team ERA that has gone from first (and historically great) to worst in the space of two years; Rollins 1 double from the Phillies' all-time lead, Manuel 4 wins from 1000.

Phillies Stat Notes: July 26, 2013

Losing five games in a row means that the Phillies' paths to the postseason are getting increasingly narrow and very very unlikely. Jimmy Rollins' next double will put him in a tie as the Phillies' all-time leader.

A tale of two pitchers

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

Phillies Stat Notes - July 22, 2013

The math by which the Phillies could reach the postseason was made a bit more unlikely by the events of this past weekend.

Phillies Stat Notes: July 19, 2013

Phillies 2nd in the NL in average, slugging, and OPS since May 6th.

Chris Davis - meh

Chris Davis' home run rate in the first half was one of the best in recent memory. But it's neither unheard of among very good home run hitters, nor out of place in Davis' own past performance.

Phillies All-Stars since 1970

Phillies named to the All-Star team since 1970, summaries by position, and the relationship between winning and representatives.

Phillies Stat Notes: July 12, 2013

Ben Revere has the most hits in MLB over the last 30 days, and is even 16th in WAR in that time. Also, the Phils have the 2nd highest OPS in the NL over the last two months.

Arbitrary Thresholds and Quality Starts

The Phillies lead the NL in Quality Starts, but are only 11th in team ERA. So the starters have been excellent and the bullpen has been awful. Right?

Phillies Stat Notes: July 5th, 2013

Phillies better than one would have thought with men on 3rd and less than two outs. The Braves come in with some of the best hitting in the NL. And some of the best pitching, having given up the fewest runs in the league.

Phillies Stat Notes - Utley Still the Man

Chase Utley is still among the best second basemen in the game, both at the plate and in the field.

Phillies Stat Notes: June 27, 2013

Phillies with the best record in the NL East since April 19th, but playoff chances remain under 7%. Utley now 20th in MLB history in getting hit by a pitch.

Phillies Stat Notes: June 24, 2013

Phillies team stats compared to last year and to the Padres. San Diego has very good hitting (although it's masked by Petco field) and terrible pitching (although it's made to look better by Petco).

Where has Paul Jolovitz been for the last month?

Ryan Howard has been hitting like a Player of the Month candidate, yet not everyone has taken notice.

Phillies Stat Notes: June 21, 2013

The Mets have two very good young starting pitchers. But no bullpen, little offense, and no defense. But it's a start. Also, Rollins only four away from becoming the Phils' all-time leader in doubles. And Phils have NL East's best record since 4/19

Phillies Stat Notes - June 17, 2013

The Phils start a series with NL East rival Washington, and even though they're limping home from a 3-7 road trip, they're still not out of the division race because the Braves and Nats haven't been playing any better over the last 60 days.

"They Never Go First to Third"? Not So

The Phillies are no longer the threat on the bases that they once were in the days of Victorino, Werth, and younger versions of Rollins and Utley. But they can still take an extra base.

Phillies Stat Notes: June 14, 2013

Ben Revere and Michael Young are on pace to infamy, while Dom Brown looks to continue to make a case for the All Star team. Elsewhere, Raul Ibanez is still going strong.

Phillies Stat Notes: June 11, 2013

Interleague series history, Phillies team stats, and upcoming milestones.

Phillies Stat Notes: June 6, 2013

Comparing Phillies' team stats to last year, and to the Brewers. Upcoming milestones for Rollins, Howard, and Hamels.

Tom McCarthy: You're Way Off on Frandsen

Or why batting average is a woefully inadequate and misleading stat for judging hitters' productivity.

Lists of key players by level and position in the Phillies system, along with year-to-date stats.

Phillies Stat Notes: June 3, 2013

Domonic Brown has a good shot at a second straight Player of the Week award, and possibly even Player of the Month. Also, how real is the Phillies June Swoon?

Phillies Stat Notes: May 31, 2013

Brown the 17th Phillie to hit 10 homers in one month. Rollins now 7th in walks and 10th in RBIs in Phils history.

Quick Reaction: Phillies 5, Nationals 3

The Phillies held on to even the series with several key two-out hits, and another solid performance from Jonathan Pettibone.
