2012 Tampa Bay Rays Streamgraph: Offensive Production

Raysstream_medium

A streamgraph of the offensive production of the 2012 Rays probably seems more than a little counterintuitive. For most of the season, the Rays won not by scoring gobs of runs, but by leading all of baseball in preventing them.

I think the most obvious takeaway from this chart is that the offense was good when Evan Longoria was in the line-up, and bad when he wasn't. Considering that the Rays still managed to win 90 games in the AL East with a young and deep starting rotation and a great bullpen, I'd venture a guess that Maddon will find a way to put together a winning lineup without BJ Upton.

An explanation of the chart can be found under the "What is all this" link above the chart.

If you have any feedback, good/bad/confused, I'd love to hear about it.
