The Last 20

If you don’t know, there is a stat site simply titled Dougs Stats. It has your basic information, but is also has a summary of the stats from the last 20 games. From the AL Leaderboard, here are some Tiger stats of note:

  • Marucs Thames leads the AL over the last 20 games with a 793 OPS. We all know about the homers and he’s tied for 6th with 6. What I found surprising is he is tied for 4th with 8 doubles.
  • Brandon Inge has the 7th worst BA at .157
  • Carl Crawford, Scott Podsednik, Jeremy Reed, Ichiro Suzuki, those are the names you expect to see on top of a triples list. What you don’t expect is to see Pudge Rodriguez alongside them.
  • Curtis Granderson is tied for 6th with 13 walks. Unfortunately he is also on the strikeout list with 21. He’s not alone though as Chris Shelton (21) and Carlos Guillen (19) help fill out the top 10.
  • Nate Robertson is 8th with a 2.83 ERA and he also makes the list for innings pitched (28 1/3)

The Tigers 11-9 mark was bettered only by the Yankees and Rangers. This is despite the fact that the Tigers were in the bottom half, or lower of most team categories.
