God invented spreadsheets because of baseball.
How They Hitting
The Yankees and Dodgers have hit 27 Bomba’s in 15 games. That works out to 291.6 over 162 games. Last week’s leaders were on a 303.75 pace.
2019: 307 (your beloved Twins – did I mention that last week?)
Those gosh dern Yankees are the only team with an OPS .800 or better, and only barely (.803). The league average is .706 The
Indians come in last with a team OPS of .607. Just thought I’d mention it.
The teams are averaging 4.38 runs per game. You’ll be pleased to learn that the
Indians are only averaging 3.75 runs per game.
In 2019 the team average was 4.07 – remember no DH for half the games
There are 21 players in the American League hitting 300 or better.

How They Pitching
Where to start? Five teams have been the beneficiary of one complete game. Twenty five have not.
2019: Who cares.
According to MLB.com the
Indians lead MLB with an ERA of 1.99. Fake News!!! The Mariners are the bottom with an ERA of 6.06. That I believe.
Average team ERA (hang on a sec I have to copy and paste the MLB chart into Excel and that’s tricky for me because my mouse hand is jerky and shaky. If you hear some yelling in the next few minutes it’s probably because of that): Damn Damn Damn!!! Unlike the team hitting charts I can’t get it to paste in a spreadsheet format. We’ll have to settle for individual observations
The Royals come in at # 15 with a team ERA of 4.05.
2019: #1 Dodgers 3.37 / #15 Giants 4.38
Wow the Reds are averaging 12.31 K/9. That blows away the #2
Indians who are only getting 10.8. Number 15 with 8.3 are the Royals who just had the nerve to go ahead of the Twins for the fourth game in a row which is hardly even fair because it’s too early to start drinking.
2019: #1 Astros 10.28 / #15 Diamondbacks 8.77
Because It’s Too Early To Start Drinking And It Will Be Even Better After It’s Time To Start Drinking
