John Perrotto in BP last week:

Dallas Green turns 73 next week, but that doesn't mean the Phillies' senior advisor to the general manager is mellowing. In fact, Green was as candid as ever when asked about Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins by the Bucks County Courier Times' Randy Miller recently. "I think we're all disappointed in Jimmy's reaction to what's going on," said Green, who managed the Phillies to the only World Series title in franchise history in 1980. "His body language is just brutal right now. The body language doesn't say that 'I'm busting my ass' right now.'"

Rollins has a .276 EqA and 23.8 VORP a year after being voted the NL's Most Valuable Player. Rollins was removed from a June 5 game against the Reds by manager Charlie Manuel for not hustling, and then benched for a key game against the Mets last Thursday after arriving late to Shea Stadium and saying he had been stuck in New York traffic. "Jimmy doesn't sense, I don't think, that [his teammates] are starting to get upset with him," Green said. Green also stated that he would not hesitate to share his feelings with Rollins the next time their paths cross. "Jimmy and I have a pretty good relationship," Green said. "I'll tell him when I think he's done right and I'll tell him when I think he's done wrong. He's done wrong. He's done wrong for the team, he's done wrong for himself, and he's done wrong for Charlie."

.248 with 196 strikeouts is true, but if he is hitting a 3 run homer to take the lead every three at bats instead of a single I think that counts for something. In this day and age of sabremetrics, raw numbers aren't the only things that matter. As this article states hes far and away the best clutch hitter (with both runners in scoring position, and in the 7th inning and later). If the Phils win the division he is the reason. Pujols team is out of contention. Explain to me who is more valuable to their team...

sanskrit, Wednesday, 15 December 2010 15:26 (nine years ago) link

I can't get my head around the math (what I'd put up, what I'd win), but if someone offered me those odds, I'd definitely take the field. The Phillies front three is awesome, but there are lots of moving parts on a baseball team; those guys could pitch more or less as well as expected, and lots else could go wrong to nullify that.

clemenza, Wednesday, 15 December 2010 15:32 (nine years ago) link

(I'm assuming "championship" means World Series; if it just means division, I'd have to think about that.)

It has to mean winning the WS. I'd say they're about even money to win the division, at least.

even that wildly optimistic scenario comes out to a 25.2% of winning.. will they let you take the other side of that bet?

I'm sure they'll be much better this year now that one of their best hitters left.

I Am Kurious Assange (polyphonic), Wednesday, 15 December 2010 20:26 (nine years ago) link

The obvious cautionary note for the Phillies' chances: all those World Series won by the Maddux/Glavine/Smoltz Braves (close, but a front three I'd take over the Phillies').

clemenza, Wednesday, 15 December 2010 21:54 (nine years ago) link

Something else (seems like I'm knocking the Phillies; I'm not, just trying to look at this realistically): Roy Oswalt's been a great pitcher over his career, but is anyone looking for him to duplicate what he did after he came over to Philadelphia last year? When he left Houston, he was on the third year of a normal mid-career decline (or, if you will, adjustment); after the trade he did something not all that uncommon, which is to pitch lights out for the last couple of months. Who will the Phillies get this year: the guy they saw in August and September, or the guy who left Houston? My guess would be the latter.

clemenza, Thursday, 16 December 2010 02:14 (nine years ago) link

2 things: better defense and change of scenery. playing for one of the worst teams in baseball can't be good for the ERA/WHIP in both factors.

i love you but i have chosen snarkness (Steve Shasta), Thursday, 16 December 2010 02:18 (nine years ago) link

Agreed, in explaining what happened last year. One of those factors presumably remains, the other's gone--and I think the one that's gone can be pretty huge.

clemenza, Thursday, 16 December 2010 02:23 (nine years ago) link

I'm not saying he won't pitch well; even an average year from Oswalt will be pretty good. I'm saying he won't be putting up a 1.74 ERA, and there are reasons to believe he's more inclined to be in the mid-three range or higher.

clemenza, Thursday, 16 December 2010 02:26 (nine years ago) link

If you're going to ignore the SABR figures, I'd try not to limit your focus to straight ERA. Something that's telling even in his "off"-first half of the year with Houston is that his WHIP was 1.11 and his BAA was .229. Those #s are in line with your #1-#2 pitchers. He will be fine.

i love you but i have chosen snarkness (Steve Shasta), Thursday, 16 December 2010 02:28 (nine years ago) link

yeah is anyone saying roy oswalt is gonna put up a sub-2 era? i must have missed that.

call all destroyer, Thursday, 16 December 2010 02:29 (nine years ago) link

I'm watching the Lee press conference and I can't think of any player I've seen in my lifetime who ever wanted to be a Philly as much as he does

Mordy, Thursday, 16 December 2010 02:29 (nine years ago) link

yeah is anyone saying roy oswalt is gonna put up a sub-2 era? i must have missed that

Not explicitly, no. But I'm addressing the idea that the Phillies are now overwhelming, off-the-chart favorites to win next year (which is what the past 30 posts have been about)--to believe that, I think one of the assumptions you'd be making is that Oswalt next year will be something close to the Oswalt of August and September. "He will be fine"--sure, no argument. I'm questioning the idea that Halladay + Lee + "He will be fine" = 1970 Orioles.

clemenza, Thursday, 16 December 2010 02:34 (nine years ago) link

Let me be even clearer: no one here is saying that about Oswalt--but whoever pegged the Phillies at 5 to 2 to win the Series is.

clemenza, Thursday, 16 December 2010 02:36 (nine years ago) link

I think even the phillies fans (like me) think the 5 to 2 number is ridiculous

Mordy, Thursday, 16 December 2010 02:45 (nine years ago) link

Another thing I'd be interested in doing is going back over every postseason since '69 and asking two questions: who among the playoff teams was favored to win, and who actually did win? If you eliminated the occasional year where there was no clear favorite, I'd be surprised if even half the favorites ultimately emerge as the WS winner. (I'm just guessing.) And a) it becomes even more a roll of the dice in the wild-card era, and b) all of that presupposes that you make the playoffs in the first place. Winning a World Series is really hard!

But you're right, probably everybody here realizes those odds are crazy.

clemenza, Thursday, 16 December 2010 02:52 (nine years ago) link

uhhh you realize vegas sets odds to get action, not because they have an actual opinion?

call all destroyer, Thursday, 16 December 2010 02:53 (nine years ago) link

Thanks for the clarification; I assume it's also meant for all the other people upthread who commented on the absurdity of those odds.

clemenza, Thursday, 16 December 2010 02:55 (nine years ago) link

Clem, just to back up a bit I think perhaps you are underrating Oswalt's tenure with Houston in 2010. Take a look at some defense independent stats. He had a great YEAR, he was one of the top 15-20 pitchers in baseball (nb: I was his biggest cheerleader on ILB). Yes he was particularly great down the stretch. but take a deeper peak at his season with Houston outside of ERA and you may be surprised...

UNLESS you're going "retro-cool" for ERA like you did for RBIs earlier this year, and in that case, I am just gonna shrug.gif

i love you but i have chosen snarkness (Steve Shasta), Thursday, 16 December 2010 03:04 (nine years ago) link

xp yes it is, talking about odds is pointless unless you are gambling

call all destroyer, Thursday, 16 December 2010 03:06 (nine years ago) link

Yes he was particularly great down the stretch. but take a deeper peak at his season with Houston outside of ERA and you may be surprised...

I have, and you're quite right; his H/9 and SO/BB with the Astros were very good last year. How about we split the difference between his four months with Houston and two with the Phillies, add a year for age, and say he'll have an ERA around 3.00 next year?

talking about odds is pointless unless you are gambling

And talking about the Academy Awards is pointless, unless you're a marketing executive--but we do, all the time. Most everything we argue about here is pointless. But it's fun, so we do.

clemenza, Thursday, 16 December 2010 03:18 (nine years ago) link

i'm not a big gambler, but it seems to me that the odds have a lot more to do with popular conception than some realistic set of facts. like, phillies are probably a very hot bet right now because of this trade and so vegas responds appropriately by giving you far less payout for your bet.

Mordy, Thursday, 16 December 2010 03:19 (nine years ago) link

Anyway, I'll admit that I misunderstood the initial origin of these 5:2 odds. I thought they were the opinion of a writer, or someone at ESPN--I didn't realize they were actual Vegas odds.

clemenza, Thursday, 16 December 2010 03:22 (nine years ago) link

but you have to factor in the vig.. which at this stage must be pretty steep. perhaps a good 10% more which would wipe out insured profit. and to cad's point, it's largely pr blathering to churn up interest.

Another thing I'd be interested in doing is going back over every postseason since '69 and asking two questions: who among the playoff teams was favored to win, and who actually did win?

How often does the team that won the most games in that season go on to win the WS? It's fairly rare (they show these numbers every year during the playoffs).

Yes, but this has to be balanced against offering too-favourable odds on the other teams, which a boomaker needs to avoid, at least before the betting has really started. Joe Posnanski is baffled the Royals are 125-1, for example. I'm baffled the Dodgers and their sexy new rotation are 30-1 when there's no guarantee the Rockies or Giants will be obviously better in 2011.
