The Dice-K stat that tells his whole story!!!!

Just heard a fascinating Dice-K stat on the radio and this came from the Blue Jays and their scouting department. Dice-K is really two different pitchers…Pitcher 1 is dominant and Pitcher 2 is not.

Pitcher 1 holds opposing batters to an on base percentage of 0.255
Pitcher 2 holds opposing batters to an on base percentage of 0.345

This are stats from Dice-K’s entire career. Any guesses? C’mon now…think about it……alright I will tell you…

Pitcher 1 is Dice-K over his career pitching from the wind up and Pitcher 2 is Dice-K over his career pitching from the stretch. He is a completely different pitcher when put into the stretch. Both the Mariners and the Blue Jays have proved this. His pitches do not break as much and his velocity is lower because he can not get that special torque that comes from his windup. I can not wait o watch him pitch against he Yankees against Jeter, Abreau, Arod and Giambi…hitters that work counts and take pitches. I think this will be a great time to watch Dice-K try and battle through the Yankee lineup. This is also something that needs to be watched throughout the season. Dice-K has to make adjustments and has to get better out of the stretch or else we will continue to see where he breaks down. He recovered nicely last night to only give up two runs in that inning because it could of been a lot worse. Sunday night in Fenway will be electric and I can not wait to see the Yanks take their cracks at the mighty Dice-K.

  1. Are you ignorant? It’s easier for a runner to get on base when runners are already on, which is the reason why he’d be pitching from the stretch. And how’d them yanks do against Dice-K? Oh what’s that you say? The Yanks didn’t make the playoffs but the Sox did? so much for that theory.
