Game 38, Mariners At Orioles
Vargas vs Britton, 4:05 pm.
(Yes, I know, Britton is an LHP. But, I want to rant about this, and we all know Olivo isn’t moving down in the line-up against righties any time soon.)
Miguel Olivo vs RHP, 2011: .162/.222/.203
Brendan Ryan vs RHP: .188/..243/.232
Chone Figgins vs RHP: .218/.277/.241
Jack Wilson vs RHP: .279/.319/.302
NL Pitchers at the plate, 2011: .135/.162/.170
Against right-handed pitchers, Miguel Olivo has been marginally better than a random National League pitcher, and worse than all of the team’s no power, slap hitting infielders who you would never consider hitting fourth in the line-up. Stop it, Eric Wedge. You want to help this offense score more runs? Stop hitting Miguel Olivo fourth against righties. It’s stupid.
