Recommended Posts

Starting to wonder what kind of deal he's made with the devil the way his season has turned around.

This guy is decent.

Agreed. He doesn’t steal any bases.

I dunno, but whatever it is I think the devil gave him a bit of that juice in return...

Jeff Sullivan, Fangraphs: Understanding Matt Carpenter

 

Too much good stuff in there to excerpt, so read the whole thing  TL;DR: Elite plate discipline + elite ground ball rate + elite popup rate == ideal launch angle, which allows him to get the most out of a rather mediocre exit velocity.

This was a fantastic read, thanks! I can only imagine the numbers he would put up if the ball was "juiced" like last year.

if there ever was a deal with a  devil a struggling hitter would make - this is damn sure what it looks like.  Dude is homering essentially every other game it seems.

Matt Carpenter is going to hit 40 bombs this year. Think about that for a second...

at this rate, he might hit 50 :o

 

I wish but the rate won't maintain, the HR's will slow down...I could see 40-42 if he stays hot.

X-rays negative according to Cards announcers.

 

 

Woo, that came quickly. Hopefully it is not one of those X-rays reveal nothing, MRI reveals something cases.

Bet the manager gives him today and possibly tomorrow off to make sure this hand doesn't become a lingering issue.

What is in that salsa... 

Apparently mold. 200 average last two weeks 0/12 last 4 games. Is the hot streak over?

Can't expect him to stay hot every single day.  But I do think they should move Harrison bader to leadoff and hit him 2nd or 3rd.
