Dodgers Season In Thirds: A Look At 2010 In 54-Game Increments

New, 557 comments

At the end of the season, I like to look back at the season in 54-game increments, breaking the season down in thirds.

Here's an overview of the team numbers:

2010 W-L Runs For Runs Allowed BA/OBP/SLG ERA
1st 54 games 31-23 254 (4.70/gm) 246 (4.56/gm) .264/.331/.403 3.98
2nd 54 games
25-29
221 (4.09/gm) 219 (4.06/gm) .254/.325/.378
3.97
Final 54 games 24-30 192 (3.56/gm) 227 (4.20/gm) .238/.308/.355 4.10

A few notes about the last 54 games:

  • Clayton Kershaw was pretty damned consistent all season
  • Ryan Theriot scored 24 runs in the final 54 games of the season...to lead the club
  • Matt Kemp hit 10 home runs in the final third of the season, but also hit .214 with a .282 OBP
  • James Loney was Matt Kemp with eight fewer home runs, making for a brutal final 54 games
  • Kershaw, Hiroki Kuroda, Chad Billingsley, and Ted Lilly were very, very good
  • Lilly led the Dodgers with 72 strikeouts over the final 54 games, followed closely by Billingsley's 70, and 68 by Kershaw
  • Hong-Chih Kuo and Kenley Jansen were sublime

Here is the breakdown position by position:
