CANES OPS (On Base % plus slugging %)

CANES OPS (On Base % plus slugging %) 


In 2011, our OPS was .770, which was average or a grade of D.
Our GPA (Gross Production Average) was .347 which was close to superior according to The Hardball Times, and later David Wang.

So far this season, our OPS is .773, which is average or a grade of D
Our GPA (Gross Production Average) is .267. 

Both listed grades are according to Bill James' seven categories of classification in his essay: "The 96 families of hitters."

I feel its useful to post. Again, granted, its not against the elite in College Baseball, but it gives an idea how effective and crisp we've been the first six games. As you said, after the Florida series, we'll start to get a little better idea where we are.

Crisp , I do not think we are crisp. Have you been watching the games. Yes we are winning and doing about an average job. Not sure OCF would agree but he will not respond to anything you say and I should not either but you are way off base here. This teams pitching could be REAL good and even Great but they better, and I think they will start hitting, and running the bases better. Right now they are young and making some errors and striking out a lot. Heck they still only had 8 hits last night and some of the reasons we did so well is Albany walked the whole team . As I said get a life here and actually watch or listen to the games to get a real idea of where we are now without your figures that do not reflect what is really going on at the stadium.

I think we're above average right now. The errors are something that I don't like, 7 errors in 6 games so far. Same point last year, we committed 10 errors, so we are a little better in that regard, however, I do want to see those cut down even more.

At this point last year, we K'd 46 times. At the same point this year, we've been K'd 48 times. Still a problem. We need to be more disciplined at the plate and seeing how many times we've been K'd, that's an issue.

The OPS as I stated in my original post is still very good.

Last time and I am done , your OPS are meaning less at this time , give it a rest. Come back in a month and give them out. It would be like in Football saying we are 3-0 after playing two Div 2 schools and 1 bad Div1 team. It does not matter, it is WHAT YOU SEE ON THE FIELD. You just stated to me the most important fact, we are striking out MORE. Hitting is a problem, and will come around I hope . Those figures are all in your head, just forget them please they do not help at all. I believe if OCF stated to me what he witness on the field would mean a hell of a lot more at this time , or others that are there. I have watched ever game live and I think we have a long way to go .......but I believe we will get there... I hopemad

Negative , can you read ? All I said was the team putting to many errors on the field and need to do better. Do you not agree? Then I said they were striking out to much . Did you not agree? Then I said pitching was real good , maybe could be great. Do you not agree? Then I said we are real young any will get better. Do you not agree? Yep last night we did much better , 12 hits with 10 runs and only 1 error . But if your going to quote stats like Dannyboy does then you have to look at them. I for one have watch U baseball for over 49 years and I will wait a little bit longer before I express my opinion on how this team is doing . Yes we are 8-0 and l love it . But being careful before I see Omaha coming is just not negative but realistic.

What bump is needed is a bump on head for OP as Rich was right a month ago and other than last night we have been little more than average since this thread began.  We are fundamentally weak, make little league baserunning errors and strike out WAY too much.

Read the thread on the Walk/K ratio. You'll see that we have had a big problem with the K's. 

Look at the OPS after 30 games, its very good. (.841) and a Gross Production Average of .288, also very good. Not to mention the fact that we're hitting .295 as a team. That's pretty damn good. 

At the end of the day, the only thing that really matters is winning. Last I checked, we won last night.
