Edwin Encarnacion’s Amazing Month Vs Troy Tulowitzki’s Amazing Season

For the most part this is a Toronto Blue Jays centric blog and a secondary focus is on the American League East.  I know the blog name is odd but I thought it would be a clever play on words.  We’ll call it a foul tip as opposed to full swing and miss.  But today I want to focus on a player who has received attention of course but nowhere near what is warranted.

Troy Tulowitzki is having one amazing start to a baseball season.

Our beloved “Edwing” Edwin Encarnacion has had a month of May that no Blue Jays fan will soon forget.  EE has slashed 284/350/789, 31 hits, 16 homeruns, 1.139 OPS and an incredible .479 wOBA.  He hit his 15th and 16th HR for the month, tying him with Mickey Mantle for the most HRs in one month.  In short he has been hotter than Rob Ford’s crack pipe.

Now prepared to be blown away.  Take a look at this comparison of Edwin’s white-hot May and Troy Tulowitzki’s total season numbers:

  PA   AVG   OBP   SLG   OPS    wOBA  
E.Encarnacion (May-2014) 120 .284 .450 .789 1.139 .479
T.Tulowitzki (2014) 208 .369 .471 .702 1.174 .492

Now consider the fact Troy Tulowitzki is also playing well above average defense at shortstop and has been worth a league leading 4.1 fWAR already this year.  In roughly two months Troy Tulowitzki has already been exactly what Edwin Encarnacion was worth (4.1 fWAR) for ALL of 2013.

Troy Tulowitzki has produced more surplus value in 2014 than prominent Blue Jays Melky Cabrera (1.2 fWAR), Juan Francisco (1.1 fWAR), Jose Reyes (0.8 fWAR) and Brett Lawrie (0.6 fWAR) combined.  Yeah, he’s been pretty good so far and yeah the Toronto Blue Jays drafted Ricky Romero one spot ahead of him in the 2005 draft.

    I’m not sure exactly why but this website is loading extremely slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end?
    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
