Statistical Craziness

*Matt Kemp of the Dodgers has scored 27 runs this season and knocked in 25, making him accountable for 52 runs of production in just 25 games.  The lowly Pittsburgh Pirates have scored only 68 runs as entire team in 24 games.  Kemp is that awesome and the Buccos offense is that bad.

*Kemp also has 12 homeruns, while the Chicago Cubs as a team have a mere 11.  Kemp powerful, Cubbies not.

*Fernando Rodney of the Rays was an unwanted man for most of the offseason, but luckily Tampa Bay scooped him up because their incumbent closer Kyle Farnsworth went down with an injury in Spring Training.  Rodney now leads the American League with 8 saves.  Bet a lot of teams would want him now.

*Roy Halladay of the Phillies was given a 6-run lead, but ended up surrendering 8 runs to the Braves.  He was on the hook for the loss, but the Phils were able comeback.  This was significant because Halladay was a perfect 107-0 in career when staked to a 4-run lead or better.  That streak remains intact.

*The Philadelphia Phillies as a team have only walked 48 times this season.  Cleveland Indians teammates Carlos Santana and Travis Hafner have combined for 36 bases on balls alone.

*The 2012 MLB season is only a month old and there have already been 2 no-hitters tossed, thanks for Jered Weaver and Phillip Humber.

*Carlos Ruiz, catcher of the Phillies, had more RBI last night (7) than Albert Pujols has knocked in all season for the Angels (5).

*Lance Lynn currently leads the National League with 5 wins.  If not for an injury to Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter, he likely wouldn't have even been in the rotation to begin the year.

*After starting the season in a horrible slump (4-37 with 3 R, 2 HR, and 4 RBI) and having fans wonder if he would be demoted to the minors, Pedro Alvarez has gone on a tear over the last 8 games (12-29 with 8 R, 4 DBL, 4 HR, and 8 RBI).  Maybe he can help the Pirates offense get going.

*After starting the year 0-26, Nick Johnson of the Orioles has 3 hits in his last 9 at bats.

Like the site and the diversity of posts. One comment on this one. Wouldn't Kemp only be responsible for 40 runs? A homer gives you and rbi and run scored, so the 12homers produce 40 actual runs, but 24 if you "double-dip" the stats.

Yeah, you're right on that one.
