Lineup Analysis Phils/Giants


Ok, One guy's opinion here:

 

 

Ok, lineup spot by spot.

 

1.       Victorino v Torres

Torres advantage. Higher OB, average and power. Similar speed, but slight advantage there to Victorino in terms of SBs

2.       Polanco v Sanchez

Very similar. Dead even.

3.       Utley v Huff

This year Huff is better. More power, more average same OB

4.       Howard v Posey

Experience aside,  Posey has better numbers, average, OB. Similar slugging. Extrapolated for a whole year Posey would have had 27 HRs, 100 RBI. Ryan hit 31 108

5.       Werth versus Burell

As mentioned this is the big gap. Werth is better across the board.

6.       Rollins versus Uribe

Rollins has speed, Uribe power. Other numbers are very similar. Draw

7.       Ibanez versus Panda/Fontenot

I think they should play Panda, but they may not.  Ibanez big advantage v Font, very similar numbers to Panda. Draw with Panda

8.       Ruiz V Ross

Ross has better power and is hot. Ruiz had better ave/ob during season. Probably a draw, but I could go with a slight Phil advantage if you throw out Ross’s hot streak

 

Fielding

C – Posey has a great arm, Ruiz experience. Draw

1b – Huff is better Howard is a slug

2b -  Draw

SS – HUGE advantage to Phil

3b – Draw with Fontenot, advantage to Phil with Panda

LF – Draw

CF – Draw

RF – Draw

 

SPs – Draw on the first three, SF advantage on #4 (if the Phils use 4)

RP – advantage SF

 

Overall, that's pretty dang close. Forecast for more torture and a good series.
