    Pedroia's SPCT

    Holt has a higher SPCT than Pedroia's at .408 to .379....It's stunning when you take into account that Pedroia's lowest SPCT until this year was .415 last year and his lifetime SPCT is .446....Drastic drop for him. His average is good and he's still a GG fielder, but I'm afraid he's losing it a bit as a slugger. Not dumping on him, just stating a fact about his production and lack of slugging.

    Re: Pedroia's SPCT

    His slugging has dropped for 4 straight seasons, going back to his career high of .493 in 2010.  But his OBP and BA and defense have not.

     

    He brings enough else to the table that I don't fret over one dropping stat as a sign that he is done...

    First you say Pedroia's lower slugging percentage (than Holt's) is "stunning," then you say you aren't dumping on him.  Methinks you speak with forked tongue.  You wouldn't have started this thread if you intent were not to bring him down.

    I'd be a little skeptical of someone who chose the name of the player (Danny Cater) that the Red Sox received in the worst Yankee/Sox trade in history, from the Sox' perspective, as his screen name.

    I said in April his HR days are behind him and got bashed for it.

    He's still very valuable and that $110MM contract is now fair; it's no longer "team friendly" since he has no more power........

    Babe Ruth was "sold" to the Yankees for cash.  Technically not considered a trade.  Well aware of the transaction, though, and I get your point.

    I thought SPCT had to do with balls and strikes. (strikes/balls+strikes) or something of that sort. Where does slugging come into it?

    Can't go a day w/o ripping poor ole Pedey, can you.

    Of course when you talk about slugging, you have to specify home run power. He's still a doubles machine. He leads the Sox with 31, which is a deceiving 10th in the league. Deceiving because one double would put him in a tie for fourth and two would put him in a tie for third. After Cabrera with 40, the next nine in doubles are between 31 and 34, so Pedroia still ranks among the top in the league in doubles.

    And that's fine with me. I never expect a lot of homers from Pedey, certainly not the 21 he hit in 2011. I'd like him to reach double digits but if he's in the seven to nine range but is among the leaders in doubles, that's fine. My beef with him this year was his clutch hitting in the first half. He's up to .252 w/RISP but the first half, he was bad, which hurt the team.

    Funny thing about his power is he was a bit snake-bitten this year. I've seen at least four or five balls that had home run distance that he pulled just a bit foul down the LF line.

    I thought it was a bit odd to see Holt, who to me has done very little in the slugging department, have a higher Slugging Percentage than Pedroia. It's 67 points off his career percentage so it's alarming for sure. As a complete player and MLB 2b, he is the best defensive player at his position and certainly among MLB's best 2b men. He's just not going to drive in RBI much or hit HR much.

    It is interesting to see fans come flying to his defense no matter what. I do compare him a bit to Nomar in the respect that both were/are hustlers, go 150 percent type guys.
