If the Phillies Hadn’t Played the Marlins…

Posted By Paul Boye On June 5, 2013 @ 2:28 pm In MLB,Philadelphia Phillies | 84 Comments

The Phillies have had some success against the Miami Marlins in an otherwise uninspired year. They’ve gone 8-4 against the Fish, 21-24 against all other contenders entering Wednesday.

Many players have also enjoyed their best (or worst) personal success against the Marlins in 2013, who are quite easily regarded as one of the more hapless teams running these days, for a variety of reasons.

If the Marlins didn’t exist, just what would the season lines of some members of the lineup look like? I wonder these things to myself, and will now indulge this voice in my head.

1B Ryan Howard

  • Vs. Marlins: .421/.500/.789, 2 HR, 6 BB, 7 K in 44 PA
  • Vs. All Others: .213/.246/.352, 5 HR, 8 BB, 57 K in 171 PA

2B Chase Utley

  • Vs. Marlins: .100/.152/.267, 1 HR, 1 BB, 5 K in 33 PA
  • Vs. All Others: .313/.382/.523, 6 HR, 15 BB, 19 K in 144 PA

3B Michael Young

  • Vs. Marlins: .244/.244/.293, 0 HR, 0 BB, 4 K in 41 PA
  • Vs. All Others: .261/.368/.366, 2 HR, 24 BB, 27 K in 166 PA

SS Jimmy Rollins

  • Vs. Marlins: .200/.319/.225, 0 HR, 7 BB, 5 K in 47 PA
  • Vs. All Others: .274/.332/.436, 4 HR, 16 BB, 32 K in 199 PA

OF Domonic Brown

  • Vs. Marlins: .292/.306/.625, 4 HR, 1 BB, 10 K in 49 PA
  • Vs. All Others: .282/.326/.564, 13 HR, 10 BB, 32 K in 175 PA

OF Ben Revere

  • Vs. Marlins: .286/.333/.310, 0 HR, 3 BB, 8 K in 46 PA
  • Vs. All Others: .231/.261/.266, 0 HR, 7 BB, 17 K in 153 PA

The Phillies have had a big chunk of their games to date against the Marlins. For some (Howard, Revere sort of), that’s been good news. For others (Utley when he returns, Young and Rollins), the Fish have been a tough nut to crack. Fun with small samples.
