    such a valid point regarding the graph presented. i thought these graphs automatically adjusted and didn't show any data up until the point of stability. oddly enough, when i go back to the exact same graph, it defaults to a 15 game rolling period and doesn't give me the option to adjust the time frame. no idea how i got to where i did.. to your point regarding seasonal differences versus pitcher adjustments: seasonal differences aren't really a thing, they're just arbitrary days off. if there's improvement in home runs allowed, it's more than likely because of one of a handful of things.. pitcher adjustment, ballpark factors (new team, new park, etc.), or potentially the opponent(s) faced if the sample size is small enough on either side . i can't think of much else that would affect the ability to prevent/allow home runs. what's different between last season and this season? you mention k% spike, but then say it's nothing he did differently. the k% is because he's doing something differently, no? improved pitch quality or the addition of a pitch.

    edit: wow that's big. lol anyways, it appears that he's making improvements, which is the most important takeaway, right?

    i think the same could potentially be said regarding defense and an arbitrary endpoint. i grant you that santana is probably better, but each of these players has had wild swings using UZR season-to-season. i'm not 100% sold that santana is tremendously better..

    sure, santana has been better in the past vRHP, but bour has still been better. from 2015-2018: bour 130 wRC+ santana 120 wRC+

    i'm not going to copy the whole post, you can follow the link to the santana thread if you care. why wouldn't bour take playing time from santana vRHP? he's considerably better than santana.
  6. Carlos Santana 2018 Outlook

    for those saying the phillies won't platoon them.. why? exactly why wouldn't you platoon bour and santana and get the most production out of both players? Santana vRHP - wRC+ 101 (371 PA) vLHP - wRC+ 106 (136 PA) Bour vRHP - wRC+ 126 (310 PA) vLHP - wRC+ 71 (139 PA) so, roughly, for 2018 Santana has been 35% better against LHP than Bour. conversely, Bour has been 25% better than Santana against RHP. seems like a pretty easy platoon to gain an advantage depending on the pitcher handedness. is one of them extremely better than the other related to defense?

    While I appreciate your opinion, I'm more interested in what the Phillies are planning or are likely to do.

    in 2015 he had 88.2 IP in 2016 he had 136 IP in 2017 he had 82 IP in 2018 he currently has 117.2 IP do they shut him down after a few more starts? how far will the phillies push him?

    rough week for sure, but i'm still baby-stepping with him overall. compared to last season, he's improved by about 30% this season (using wRC+). walks up, strikeouts down, avg/iso/obp all up. i'd like to see a little higher average (more 300 vs 280), but this is about what was expected of him.

    i don't know wtf to do with this clown... not getting regular PAs and not doing much with the few that he does receive. he would never make it through waivers, so he's not going to be traded. so now what.... especially difficult for those in keeper leagues.
