Waiting for Presley


I can't wait until Presley returns.  His upcoming return is one of the few reasons I am still cautiously optimistic about the Pirates chances.  I'm not a stat master like some people on this blog.  However I am a believer in the concept that there are some athletes that simply help their teams win - it isn't always pretty and they don't always have hall of fame statistics, but they win.  I think Presley is one of those players.  Sure the sample size is small but look at the record depending on the LF starter. (Note: These numbers do not consider days where someone was spelling the normal starter - it simply breaks it down by who the incumbent was).

 

Tabata - 39-40

Presley - 12-6

Post-Presley - 3-9

 

Maybe I'm over analyzing these numbers (ok - im probably over analyzing).  But maybe, just maybe, Presley is one of those players who really ignites a fire for a team and acts like a "spark-plug".  Hopefully they turn it around - and hopefully Presley is a big part of it.
