Ottoneu League 52 — Deeper Stats

We’re only 3 weeks into the baseball season, but for those of us Ottoneu players the wheeling and dealing has been going for months.   I’ve started to keep a spreadsheet that allows me to track team performance at a slightly more granular level than the stats provided by the site (basically, Points/Game for hitters and Points/IP for pitchers).  Below is a table showing some additional information on the teams performances through 20 or so games.

Team Points IP P PTS H PTS OBP SLG OPS P/PA HR/9
Frosted Mini Weeks 2703.0 243.1 1312.7 1390.26 0.348 0.480 0.829 1.364 0.889
We Got Wood 2543.4 221.1 1260.3 1283.13 0.324 0.459 0.784 1.288 0.692
The Syndicate 2517.9 240.1 1296.5 1221.36 0.317 0.419 0.735 1.117 0.787
MoPain MoGain 2456.5 270.2 1269.9 1186.56 0.327 0.416 0.743 1.145 0.866
The Crying of No. 49 2428.5 261.2 1279.9 1148.62 0.337 0.427 0.764 1.215 0.861
Chicago Chiefs 2195.0 178.2 891.0 1304.00 0.354 0.422 0.776 1.210 1.212
WAR Horse 2141.0 150.2 901.2 1239.80 0.338 0.450 0.787 1.257 0.959
Durham Tobacconists 2101.2 168.2 824.2 1277.02 0.342 0.444 0.786 1.267 1.124
Enrico Palazzo 1997.2 171.2 787.5 1209.68 0.349 0.420 0.770 1.200 0.946
Shoeless Joes 1996.4 169.1 761.0 1235.45 0.354 0.446 0.800 1.263 1.224
Knights 1960.9 190.0 988.0 972.90 0.332 0.387 0.719 1.055 0.947
Lucky Strikes 1062.0 73.2 395.3 666.72 0.307 0.356 0.662 0.913 0.615

I would welcome any thoughts that you readers have on the info – for me a few things jump out:

(1)  The league is quickly separating into two groups – the top 5 teams are on pace to throw between 1700-2100 innings (against the Otto maximum of 1500), so the points lead they enjoy may be deceptive, and the next 6 teams (and Lucky Strikes is in complete rebuild mode after his 2012 championship).  Of the top group, WGW may be benefitting from some luck in the Pitching/HR department, but they and FMW are hitting with power the other three teams don’t yet show.

(2)  Two teams from that 2nd group – Chicago Chiefs and Shoeless Joes – lead the league in team On Base Percentage at .354, while 3 of the top 4 teams in scoring right now have the lowest team OBP, which may portend issues when the innings pitched equalize.

(3)  I find it interesting how close 9 of the 11 competing teams are in hitting, all within 150 points of each other, except for FMW (110 points ahead of the 2nd team) and Knights (200 points behind the 10th place hitting team).  The Knights SLG of .387 may turn this club into a seller if we don’t see a turnaround soon.

(4)  Joes and Chiefs look like they may have been a little unlucky with the gopher balls, so coupled with strong OBP, they may bear watching as the season progresses.

I will update periodically as the season progresses and teams either ascend or look to the future.
