OMRB - Georgia, At first glance

It has been a little tough to get motivated, to look further into what is shaping up to be a mediocre Ole Miss Baseball team.  However, I like playing with the numbers, so hopefully will find a chance to do a little bit more.  And it beats the mascot discussion, for me, at least.

When I first looked over the Georgia squad, before the Memphis game, I felt pretty good about our chances.  They come in with a 16-14 record, though they've played a tougher schedule, and Georgia sits at 67 in the Power Rankings according to College Splits.  We are currently 25th in their rankings, having dropped a few spots.  (RPI is close, we are 14 and they are 16).  Hopefully, I can use their site a little more, though we have some differences in statistical analysis, and am not sure I agree with their FIP numbers.

As a team, Georgia is batting .265/.328/.364 with an OPS of .692 (SEC is .799).  They have two players who are above the league average in OPS.  Their second baseman, Levi Hyams is hitting .328/.397/.414 with an OPS of .811.  Part-time catcher Brett DeLoach is hitting .941 with splits of .289/.407/.533.  

Pitching is substandard as well; their team ERA is 4.24; SEC is at 3.47, giving them an ERA+ of 81.8.  Their Friday night starter has been decent; Wood has an ERA of 3.40, an ERA+ of 102, a WHIP of 1.13.  Pallazzone starts on Saturday, and he has been lights out; 2.14 ERA, 162 ERA +; a 1.01 WHIP.  Gullickson has primarily been their Sunday starter, and he has not been impressive.  He hasn't lasted long, going only 24.2 IP in his 7 outings, 6 starts.  His ERA is 4.38; ERA+ is 79.3, and he has a WHIP of 1.62.  Dietrich and Maloof have been their goto guys in the bullpen (only two used in the last SEC series vs MSU).  Dietrich has a 1.37 ERA in 19.2 innings, a WHIP of 1.22.  Maloof has a high ERA, 6; but has 11 saves in 13 appearances.  No loss but presumably one bad outing has affected his ERA.  His WHIP is 1.42.

 

I would have had a lot of confidence had we not laid an egg against Memphis.  Hopefully Matt Smith is back in the lineup.  I want to go through and look at us vs them, position by position, but not sure if I'll have a chance to do that or not.  One thing I wanted to include is Strikeout rate, we've struck out a lot; they've struck out a little bit less (18.3% per PA as opposed to our 18.7%).

We are also going to be without the services of Jake Morgan for at least two weeks -  #RebsBSB is completely shutting down closer Jake Morgan for 2 weeks due to hitting a plateau in his shoulder rehab (via twitter @chaseparham)

Well that sucks.
