Anyone Miss Kouz Yet?

In honor of the recent series against the Giants this past week I present you with SCIENCE!  I have to say that I still have night terrors regarding Chase Headley roaming left field in spacious Petco Park and am quite thankful that he now occupies his natural position at third base.  I for one was happy to see Kevin Kouzmanoff traded for more than just the aforementioned reason but good God! -17.2 UZR in LF??  Anywho, I thought I would check up on the Russian GIDP wonder to see how both he and Chase have stacked up next to each other so far this year. 

 

This is where the science starts.

 

And the ADD. 

(Note: I realize that one season worth of UZR data is practically a moot point but it is included below regardless).

 

Kevin Kouzmanoff

467 PA - .260/.296/.390/.685, 10 HRs, .299 wOBA, 1/2 SB, 4.3 BB%, 16.5 K%, 10.6 UZR, 2.1 WAR


Chase Headley

494 PA - .275/.331./.392/.723, 8 HRs, .323 wOBA, 14/17 SB, 7.7 BB%, 20.8 K%, 10.7 UZR, 3.6 WAR

 

But most importantly the one stat everyone cares most about...

Headley - 8 GIDP

Kouzmanoff - 17 GIDP


The 3.6 WAR held by Chase Headley is second on the team only to Adrian Gonzalez (4.1 WAR).  The top 7 so far (according to Fangraphs' adjusted WAR) looks something like this:


Adrian Gonzalez - 4.1 WAR

Chase Headley - 3.6 WAR

Mat Latos - 2.5 WAR

Jerry Hairston Jr. - 2.4 WAR

Yorvit Torrealba - 2.2 WAR

Clayton Richard - 2.1 WAR

Tony Gwynn Jr. / Will Venable - 1.9 WAR


And for those who are curious Ryan Ludwick and Miguel Tejada have a combined worth of 1.2 WAR (0.6 WAR a piece) in 15 games thus far with the Padres.  Both have better stat lines with the Pads thus far then the ones put up with their former organizations this year.

 

*cough*SSS*cough*

 

Oh, and if we use McC rhetoric the Giants' lineup has been just a tad more "lucky" (.298 BABIP) this season then the Pads (.294 BABIP).  Oops.
