This tweet by DodgerTalk co-host Joe Block earlier today got me thinking:
Other #Dodgers hitters not named Ethier or Kemp are only half as good (so far): Kemp/Ethier OBP .511; rest of team: .256
I wonder how bad it would look if Jamey Carroll (.417 OBP) was lumped in with the haves instead of the have-nots. Well, it looks really bad. Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, and Carroll have combined for a .484 OBP while the rest of the team has a .239 OBP (.247 OBP for the non-pitchers).
Here are the Dodger on-base percentages for all non-pitchers this season:
