To elaborate further on the 4 spot, Cabrera had 688 PAs last year, with 344 coming with men on, and 178 leading off. That leaves only 166 PAs where Miggy is in a bad hitting situation (no on, 1 or 2 out), excepting a handful where the 3 hitter knocked a dinger with no outs in front of him. Over 75% of PAs are in good situations. I'd be really surprised if the same was true of the #3 hitter.
Unfortunately, 3 spot was pretty much a revolving door in 2011, so using the splits to compare is pretty difficult. I'm really looking forward to being able to run this again in 2012 to see if it bears out. Who knows, maybe I'll end up being full of it?

"They can use both (old- and new-school statistics)," Cabrera said. "In 2012, we've got to take advantage of all that.

I think Liston is on to something. Maybe good hitting isn't necessarily contagious, but poor hitting could be - if your "star" hitter starts to press or think about home runs.2012 & 2013 Adopt A Tiger: Dean Green (Lakeland Flying Tigers)
