Why C.J. Wilson drives me nuts!


Probably one of the most debated guys on the roster, C.J. Wilson blew his third game of the season last night.  He's been "excellent" for the last 3-4 weeks though, right? 

This is why he drives me nuts as a reliever.  C.J.'s BAA with no outs and no one on is .345.  Wow...  With an 0-0 count, he has a BAA of .375.  With a 1-0 count his BAA is also .375.  With a 2-0 count his BAA is .600.  On the road, C.J.'s BAA is .294

C.J. typically gets himself in trouble, and then gets himself out.  His BAA's after 1 or 2 outs...or with RISP are pretty damn good. 

In 2008: BAA with none on, none out: .311; BAA with 1 or 2 outs: .182.  The reason he sucked last year is that he had a BAA of .328 with RISP.

In the last 20 games, when C.J either comes into the game in the middle of an inning OR when he leads off an inning, he has walked / HBP / given up a hit....to the first batter he faces 14 times. 

Even though this year C.J. typically works out of the jam he puts himself in, watching him start off by putting a runner on is maddening. 

I think this is the root of why people get frustrated with C.J....and that ends up magnifying his big mistakes like the one last night.
