When In Doubt, Go With The Larger Sample Size

New, comments

Gabe Gross

Regular season: 399 PAs, .750 OPS, plus defender.

Post-season: 19 PAs, .274 OPS, looks bad lately.

Grant Balfour

Regular season: 58.3 IP, 3 homeruns allowed.

Post-season: 5.6 IP, 2 homeruns allowed.

Rays Defense

Regular season: .712 DER

Post-season:  .706 DER (.719 in the ALCS)


So yeah, anyone who says our defense has fallen off simply does not know what they're talking about.
