A few weeks ago I took a look at how Matt Kemp almost always gets off to fast starts. So now I'm going to take a look at what he does from games 21 - 40.

First 20 Games

Games 21 - 40

Year PA Hr BA OB Slug OPS Diff
2006 87 3 .263 .356 .434 .790 -237
2007 89 4 .339 .373 .643 1.016 +23
2008 86 2 .325 .365 .468 .832 +89
2009 87 1 .250 .310 .375 .685 -257
2010 88 1 .269 .352 .397 .749 -191
2011 87 3 .263 .356 .434 .790 -342

He produces during his 21 - 40 stretch, but over the last three years about a negative range of 191 - 332 points in OPS off from his fast starts.  One thing I noted, his OBP% had little variance from .352 - .373 if you throw out one year. Interesting because he had two years of .260 average and two years of .320 average and yet his OBP will still within a 20 point range.

Anyway I know within a small segment like this it is all SSS but I find the numbers interesting.
