What I'm Reading Today 6/24

1. A Great comparision of Jason Bay's stance from last year to this year over at Fangraphs.

Here are some interesting stats for Jason Bay and his lack of power to Right Field.

Here are his stats when hitting the ball to the right side:

2010: .188/.176/.375, 35 wRC+
2009: .267/.267/.533, 103 wRC+
2008: .256/.247/.522, 92 wRC+

However, if we look at the numbers to right field a little closer, we can learn some more:
2010: 8.8% LD, 5.9% GB, 85.3% FB, 24.1% IFFB, 3.4% HR/FB, .152 BABIP
2009: 9.8% LD, 11.5% GB, 78.7% FB, 20.8% IFFB, 8.3% HR/FB, .214 BABIP
2008: 8.6% LD, 9.7% GB, 81.7% FB, 13.2% IFFB, 6.6% HR/FB, .205 BABIP
2. Here is a list of the 2010 Leaders by position of WAR (Wins Above Replacement) and their "All-Star team" (ESPN Insider only).

Comparing it to my All-Star team which I posted yesterday, I was in agreement on 5 of the American League Starters, and only 3 in the NL.

The Baseball Bloggers Alliance will announce their All-Star teams soon, and I will again re-visit my votes at that time.

I'm not a huge All-Star game fan and dislike that it determines home-field advantage for the World Series, but that's not going away, so I am not going to waste time writing about it.

3. Be sure to check out the MLB Standings, as the Mets are only .5 games out of first place once again!
