Series Preview: Mariners @ Angels


Well Alex is out pocket this week and so the Series Previews lies with me. It won’t be as good but maybe I can provoke some interesting thoughts.

I’ve got

- Pitching Matchups

- Lineup Comps

- General Series Thoughts

- Pitching Match-ups

Line-ups and Positional Comps

The Tableau data didn’t come out the way I wanted but here you go. I hope you can still enjoy the visuals.

General Series Thoughts

- Dan Haren is better than Jared Weaver. Don’t let the media hype blind you.

- for all the hyped rookies on this roster (Walden, Trout and Trumbo) Jerome Williams is someone that really floats under the radar and is really interesting to me.

- Peter Bourjes is their second best position player. He should be playing in center every day with Trout in right and Vernon Wells has no business in this line-up.

    There are millions and millions of reasons why Wells should be in their lineup. I find it interesting that the good wRC+ M’s are rookies and the bad ones are the vets, the numbers confirm my eyesight has not totally failed. They should be made to walk the plank for being bad Mariners. They would not even qualify as bad pirates.

    Only smart pirates

    Could pillage and plunder

    The dumb one’s were hung

    When they’d pillage and blunder
