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.
