re: Random statistics for LSU baseball to-date
Better than I thought got 5 out of 8


Disclaimer-I count 5 and 8 as correct since I got half right and wasn't informed there were two answers.

Agreed.

Here's a brief comparison between Alex Bregman and Daniel Cabrera for their freshman season (keeping in mind that Bregman's freshman season stats are for 67 games played in and Cabrera's stats are for 50 games played in to-date):

Batting average:
Bregman - .369
Cabrera - .337

Home Runs:
Bregman - 6
Cabrera - 8

Slugging %:
Bregman - .546
Cabrera - .596

On-base %:
Bregman - .417
Cabrera - .438

Stolen bases/attempts:
Bregman - 16/17
Cabrera - 1/2

RBI:
Bregman - 52
Cabrera - 46

Doubles hit:
Bregman - 18
Cabrera - 15

Triples hit:
Bregman - 7
Cabrera - 2

Walks:
Bregman - 24
Cabrera - 31

Times Struck Out:
Bregman - 25
Cabrera - 30

Cabrera, barring injury, just might be good at baseball.....

And since this was your post and 2011 ended on the same date, 2011 is technically correct.

Bregman and Cabrera are both really good, but in comparing stats you also need to take in mind that Cabrera is playing with the "new ball" (flush seams). It has increased the power stats of college baseball.

Not nearly to the extent that some thought it would. And when comparing two players directly for just one season, the difference is close to negligible.

re: Random statistics for LSU baseball to-date
This is our 4th year with the new ball.

2013 - 68 games; 128 doubles; 47 HRs
2014 - 63 games; 117 doubles; 41 HRs
2015 - 66 games; 146 doubles; 51 HRs *New ball in play for championships
2016 - 66 games; 110 doubles; 46 HRs
2017 - 72 games; 120 doubles; 69 HRs *Deichmann w/ 19 + more games
2018 - 53 games: 102 doubles; 41 HRs


And obviously, the team makeup itself is relevant. '13, '15, and '17 were by far our best hitting teams during this period. Even on a "per game" basis, the change isn't much and tough to normalize as personnel changes.

re: Random statistics for LSU baseball to-date
Well, I want to believe, but with Nick Storz never making it back and developing, Labas possibly out, Bryce still out, Smith still out, we've got too many liabilities. I kept hoping we'd have all those guys back and that we could possibly win the SEC TOURNAMENT with 40 wins overall and host the 1st round, but I had to let that go. I'll be rooting hard regardless.

It really doesn't. A batted ball provides opportunity for a positive outcome. There is no positive outcome on a strikeout.

True, especially when other SEC teams have only hit into 6-10 fewer DPs but have struck out an additional 125+ times more than LSU.

Well if theres that big of a difference between LSU and the rest of the SEC in strikeouts then I stand corrected. But generally speaking double plays absolutely kill teams that can't hit for power. Look at the Bama game Friday night for example. We kept getting the lead off man on and kept hitting into DPs and couldn't get any runs across. Hell we somehow even hit into a 6-4-2 DP with Slaughter coming home if I remember right. If Bama doesn't implode later in that game and we lose that series our regional hopes are in desperation mode. Leading the league in double plays when you're also near the top in sacrifices does not look good and we don't have the power to make up for it. Not to mention 1 out > 2 outs.

re: Random statistics for LSU baseball to-date
I'd expect us to go through some more growing pains early on next year on the mound as well. Walker will be rusty after a year off and I'm not sure I'd put Friday night pressure on him. Same with Storz, I don't believe he pitched much his senior year of HS either so I doubt they'll ask him to be a year long starter his first year back. Hilliard will probably work Fridays, hopefully Peterson takes the Saturday spot with Labas on Sunday. However it shakes out, there's a wealth of talent here that'll be very good once everyone settles in.

re: Random statistics for LSU baseball to-date
OPS and OPB are better measures of hitting than BA. It accounts for plate discipline and putting pressure on the opposing pitcher.
Taking that into consideration, I would bet last years team dwarfs this one in OBP - especially the last month of the season.

You have 1 (Cabrera) of the top 9 hitters with an OB% over 400. In 2017 there were 5 over.

You can’t look at BA. We are far worse at hitting than last year with out top 9.

And couple that with pitching and defense both being down, it means this team is blah.

Team ERA: 4.51 (12th in SEC)


Average runs given up in away games is about 6.27.

I couldn't find the exact ERA splits for home/away so I estimated per game.

quote:

Team Batting Avg: .293 (4th in SEC) For reference LSU finished last season batting .289.


.226 Batting Avg in road games.
