these are all regular season stats.
Game 1 starters
CJ away- 2.31 ERA, 1.15 Whip, .219 BAA
Carpenter home- 3.05 ERA, 1.24 wHIP, .256 BAA
looks like CJ wins this hands down, especially if we assume (hope?) that Ceej has a good start on his 4th try.
The cards will likely roll out a right handed lineup, as will the rangers
CJ vs righties- .227 BAA/.323 OPBA/.303SLGA
Carpenter vs righties-.268 BAA/ .313OBPA/ .333SLGA
again CEEJ has the advantage. yay!
Rangers on the road-.269/.326/.413/.740
Cards at home-.270/.340./406/.745
I would say that that is a push
Rangers vs righties- .286/.339/.460/.799
Cards vs lefties- .268/.331/.437/.768
rangers look to have the advantage here!
