Pedro Feliz Versus Cardinals’ Remaining Opponents

by on August 19, 2010 · 1 comment

With today’s waiver trade for Pedro Feliz, it seems pretty clear that the Cardinals are willing to take whatever offense they can get from the third base position the rest of the year in exchange for potentially upgraded defense.

That said, with the offense finding consistency elusive yet again during this frustrating season, it goes without saying that the Cards wouldn’t mind seeing Feliz’ bat heat up a bit.

With that in mind, I pulled Feliz’ hitting statistics versus the remaining teams on the Cardinals’ schedule this season (and included the Cardinals, just for fun).

While certainly this information is not a sure-fire predictor of future performance, nor of a sample size to make rock-solid conclusions, it’s interesting to look at nonetheless.

In particular, the discrepancy between “versus over .500″ and “versus under .500″ teams is, well, noticeable.

Writing about the Cardinals and other loosely associated topics since 2008, I've grown tired of the April run-out only to disappoint Cardinal fans everywhere by mid-May. I do not believe in surrendering free outs.
