The Second Inning- 2009 edition

Long time readers of this site remember a feature called the Inning Report. Reader Sam Hoff would break down the season into 18 game segments or “innings.” Why 18 game? Because there are 9 18 game segments in a season. When the Tigers completed the Oakland series that also completed the second inning. Sam is still putting these together, but he’s posting them on his site this season. So click through to read The Second Inning is over.

When looking at the first and second inning, what struck me was how remarkably consistent the team was from one 18 game block to the next. The offense scored 102 runs in the first, 99 in the second. The team allowed 84 runs in the first inning, 86 in the second. The OPS was only 3 points apart and the starters pitched less than an inning more in this inning. The only glaring number that differed was the bullpen posting an ERA that was nearly 2 runs higher – much of that coming in the Minnesota series.

  8. Anyone else think Santiago should be starting 70% of the games at SS? Everett can still fill in for Polanco, and sub late innings for Miggy, but Santiago is on fire.
