For the baseball stat junkies out there

I’ve updated the link to Baseball Musings’ Day by Day Database.  If you haven’t seen it lately, Dave Pinto has made some really nice changes to it over the winter.  It was great before but now… well, you’ll just have to take a look to see what I mean.

Take a look at say, Albert Pujols’ splits for 2005, for example.  The DBD database will spit out the stats by righty/lefty pitcher faced, base situations, out situations, home/away and for each park, by opponents, by months, by lineup slot, by inning, by score difference (i.e. leading by 1 etc.), by pitcher type (starter/reliever).

Wow.

And that’s just the start, the database allows for player comparisons, team splits, current streaks and more.  If you’re a stat freak, it is definitely a great tool. 

Thanks to David Pinto at Baseball Musings for putting the work into this.

  1. Question: Does the database say which first baseman led major league baseball in errors in 2005?

  2. no just hitting and pitching…

    are you trying to make a point there, DonS? :)

  3. On the first base/error question, I will give you a hint.

    He hit three home runs on Easter Sunday.

    Good job.

  4. “He hit three home runs on Easter Sunday.”

    yeah, I saw the news clip on that.. we were in a restaurant with my nephew who is also a cub fan and a student at the Univ. of Ill.

    I saw AP hit the first one and went “yesss!” and he gave a LOOK. I explained AP was on my APBA team. He knows what APBA is so he at least understood if not condoned.
    After the 3rd one (the one that WON the game for Cards), I have to admit THAT one was a tad bittersweet.
