Guthrie's splits since he became a full time starter:

May/June: 10 starts....72.2 IP....1.74 ERA...1.24BB rate... .62 HR rate...6.2 K rate...5:1 command rate...1.51 GB/FB rate

July/August: 8 starts....44 IP(5.2 IP per start)....4.90 ERA.....3.9 BB rate... 2.04 HR rate....6.5 K rate....1.7:1 command rate....1.08 GB/FB rate

This is through tonight.

I agree 100% with this whole post.

Just pointing out the stats.

I figured you did. His DIPS and FIP are both in the 4.1+ range - which certainly isn't bad. Be nice to see him catch his second wind, though.

I just wanted to distinguish the 8 starts from the "real Guthrie" type analysis. I don't think a 2.1 HR rate is the real Guthrie anymore than I thought a .210 BABIP was sustainable. Trying to keep a big picture perspective. ;)

Hopefully teams have adjusted and we just need Guthrie to adjust to those adjustments. But it may be that what we've seen over the last 8 starts is the real Guthrie - the one we'll see going forward.

Well, it certainly looks to me that Guthrie can be around a 6 K rate...That is the where i would like to see him(well prefer higher but 6 or better is enough).

The BB rate has predictably gone up...It is not as flukish as it was...Same with the HR rate...These numbers are just becoming more Guthrie like.

I am not sure what his BABIP is through tonight..It was 240 as a starter and 252 overall, so that is becoming more normalized as well.

This is what i wanted to see happen...How would his stats respond when his numbers normalized?...When they were so flukish and yes, lucky( i know, THE dreaded word), i felt it was hard to really project out his future.

Yes but at the rate he is going, that will keep going up.

And i agree that the HR rate is not "real Guthrie" but neither was the first half either. It is in between the 2.

They'll keep going up if he continues to pitch like he did tonight. They need not, however -- hence my second wind comment. Though I'd suspect they will - at best - stay stable.

I think you're absolutely right about the "split the difference" estimate.

No better time to pull out the he was lucky argument than after a start like tonight. Way to be way to predictable.

You mean like the "Guthrie is the greatest" threads after the Oakland start. :rolleyes:

No one asked you to read it....This is a good guage..Basically half of his starts this year are split up here.

While i agree that the homers should "split the difference", i am not sure the rest of his stats are.

I mean, his walk rate in the minors(if you project it into the majors) was about 4, which is where it has been.

His K rate is actually higher than i would expect but i do think he can keep it around 6 and i didn't before...He has shown me that he can do that.

Look, we know that he is not as good as his 1st half. But even in the second half, when he has not been his best he has put together some good starts. He deserves one like tonight. If he puts up a good start after the next start are you going to throw the stats up again?

You can bring this thread up and and update the stats...Or i will...Don't care.

Next start...In NY btw.

Hard to disagree w/this line of thinking.

    • Longehagen still thinks Westburg is so bad that he needs a defensive caddy.  I’ll have to take his in person scouting of defense with a grain of salt.
    • Why would anyone downvote the OP?    Maybe we need a “K+” stat reflecting player K/9 divided by league average K/9, in order to compare pitchers across eras.       
    • Longenhagen went to 2023 JP Crawford as one picture of a Jackson Holliday path to a 5-win season.
    • The average K rate in 2023 was 8.7. (all pitchers) That's the fourth highest average behind 2020, 2021, and 2019. The 10th highest average is from 2014 at 7.7.    
    • Interesting guy. He's not built like a typical SP, 6'1" 205. However, he misses bats. In both college and in MiLB he averages a little over 11 K/9. Now he walks a few too many dudes, Bowie was 6.0 BB/9, but the stuff appears to play. Of note, walks were not as big of an issue when he was with Tampa Organization, pre-TJS. There is no advanced data from Baseball Savant but if he's throwing 4 pitches effectively and touching 98 post surgery, that's a big plus. I would love to see his advanced metrics from this spring. Gotta believe he starts in Bowie and will get to Norfolk soon if he's successful. I wonder if he will be on a strict pitch count.
    • It doesn’t seem that inconsistent to me.  Take what Longenhagen said: “He also isn’t currently a big league-quality shortstop defender and definitely isn’t better than Gunnar Henderson is right now….he’s talented enough to project as a suitable shortstop within the next couple of years.” For me, “suitable” doesn’t necessarily mean “good.”   It means adequate.   And you can find any number of bat-first adequate shortstops in the major leagues.  There’s one who just missed being unanimously elected to the Hall of Fame.  But in Holliday’s case, there’s a better SS on his team now, so I’m not sure he’s going to get the reps and experience to improve his play at SS in the next few years, so he may end up at 2B long term.  If so, that’s hardly the end of the world, for the Orioles or for him.  
    • That stat certainly shows how the game has changed over time, what are middle of the road K rates now rank as two of the top 10 in franchise history.  Something we all knew but this stat really highlights it, not sure why in the world it necessitated a down vote.
