By any measure, Mariners’ Morrison appears due for a change in luck

By any measure, Mariners’ Morrison appears due for a change in luck

SEATTLE — Statistical analysis in baseball isn’t, as it often seems, always at odds with those who judge the game through an eye test. Cue up Mariners first baseman Logan Morrison over the first 15 games. Eye test: “He’s hitting in some tough luck right now,” manager Lloyd McClendon said. “He’s hit some balls extremely hard. He’s had a couple home runs brought back into the ballpark.” Stat crunch: Morrison has a .200 batting average on balls in play (BABIP), which seeks to measure a player’s luck at the plate since it covers covers every plate appearance in which the...

What to expect when you're expecting regression

This was supposed to be a post about Logan Morrison. I wrote a few paragraphs analyzing his current line, looking at how his strikeouts are down and his walk rate is normal, how his BABIP is .200, and just generally how he has been tremendously unlucky.

Bunt to beat defensive shifts? Seager, Morrison have thought it through

PEORIA, Ariz. — Admit it. You’ve watched a game where a club overshifts its defensive alignment against left-handed hitters, based on spray charts and other telling sabermetric data, and wondered: Why doesn’t the guy just bunt the ball down the third-base line? It’s an easy single and — if the batter places the ball correctly and can run a little bit — it might even be a double. Let’s put the question to third baseman Kyle Seager who, other than first baseman Logan Morrison, probably saw more defensive shifts last season than any other Mariner. Is the bunt a good play when...
