Wilson is available and he can help us - now. I'd take my chances with him in the clean-up hole over Baerga any day. LOL I think most of us would agree that almost anyone is an improvement over Baerga in the cleanup slot. I was looking at Wilson's stats and just for fun grabbed his lifetime stats in what are considered the 12 best pitchers parks over his career and here's what I came up with. The numbers have been recalculated for a full 162 game season.
G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB CS AVE OBP SLG OPSI have no idea how the numbers will translate to RFK since Wilson has never played there. It looks as though Wilson turns into a doubles hitters with some pop. I didn't include his number at home with the Marlins because it always seemed to be a neutral park, that is to say in the middle of the pack somewhere. Had I included his number there, recalculated to 162 games, they would look like this.
162 610 95 172 35 2 39 112 47 167 28 7 .282 .345 .538 .883
G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB CS AVE OBP SLG OPSFrom that I get the idea he just might be well suited for a park like RFK because unless I'm misreading the numbers, it kinda looks like he might be pressing too much when he's in a hitters park... But as they say, only time will tell.
162 580 90 156 32 3 29 99 56 159 25 8 .269 .343 .484 .827
Wow, that's pretty interesting...good job there!
Hmmm, maybe his stats will be better than I thought.
