Drop a Letter and You Still Have a Name

Andy, owner of the terrific High Heat Stats and friend of the VORG, asked the following question this afternoon:

Oswaldo Arcia makes me wonder how many MLB players have a surname the same as another, minus the first letter (i.e. Garcia)… @dianagram?

So with the Lahman Baseball Database fired up, here are the names of players that have a last name “partner” if you drop the first letter of the last name.  (The “Match” column shows only the first match, alphabetically)

The “First Half” Record Holders

A couple of weeks ago on Sunday Night Baseball, John Kruk mentioned how the “first half” of the season doesn’t really match up with the “All-Star Break” anymore.  Now, loyal readers of the VORG will remember that we covered this in detail last year.  The phrase “Most ____ by the All-Star Break” is relatively meaningless when that Break changes from year-to-year.

So, if we were going to discuss the best “first half” performances of all-time, lets restrict them to the first 81 games of seasons since 1961.  Then you’d have the following record-holders (with the 154-game season from 1920-1960 [77-game 1st half] records below them):

Pitchers with a Lower ERA than WHIP in a Season

Paul Swydan of The Hardball Times and Fangraphs tweeted the following:

Paul Swydan @Swydan

1.87 would be a great ERA for a reliever. Too bad that’s Craig Breslow’s WHIP. Why is he on the Red Sox still? Give me one reason.

I then responded:

dianagram @dianagram

@Swydan HMMM …. seasons in which a pitcher’s ERA matched or was lower than his WHIP …. #ARTICLEIDEA

So here are the pitchers who had a season of at least 20 innings pitched in which their ERA was lower than their WHIP.  All of these pitchers were relievers, though a few had spot starts in the particular season.  Bob Veale has the most innings pitched with ERA < WHIP (77 1/3).  Dennis Eckersley’s 1990 season is one for the record books . . . possibly the most dominant relief campaign of the decade.

Most of a Given Name on a Team

Last time out, we listed the yearly leaders for most popular first names in baseball.    A natural extension of this is to find the teams with the most players with the same first name in a single season.  There have been four teams with at least seven different players with the same first name:

1989 Los Angeles Dodgers (8 “Mikes”): Mike Davis, Mike Hartley, Mike Huff, Mike Marshall, Mike Morgan, Mike Munoz, Mike Scioscia, Mike Sharperson

1902 Philadelphia Athletics (7 “Bills”): Bill Clay, Bill Duggleby, Bill Hallman, Bill Magee, Bill Salisbury, Bill Thomas, Bill Wolff

1973 Texas Rangers (7 “Jims”): Jim Bibby, Jim Fregosi, Jim Kremmel, Jim Mason, Jim Merritt, Jim Shellenback, Jim Spencer

1975 Texas Rangers (7 “Jims”): Jim Bibby, Jim Fregosi, Jim Gideon, Jim Merritt, Jim Spencer, Jim Sundberg, Jim Umbarger

Last year, the Detroit Tigers led the Majors, by having five players named “Jose”: Jose Alvarez, Jose Iglesias, Jose Ortega, Jose Valverde and Jose Veras

(First names are based upon listing in Lahman Baseball Database.  The linked names may differ slightly in Baseball Reference.)

Most Popular First Name – Yearly Leaders 1871-2013

We seem to have a lot of Brandons in baseball nowadays.  The Giants had three-quarters of an all-Brandon starting infield earlier this year.  However, Brandon is not the most popular first name in baseball today.  We’re going to list the yearly leaders for most common first name, from 1871-2013, with a big assist from the Lahman Baseball Database.

Your Name Doesn’t Ring a Bell

A few days ago, this tweet came in:

@dianagram . . . Have you ever done “current players with deadball era names”? I nominate Tuffy Gosewisch as the starting catcher.

In fact, I haven’t tackled such a subject . . . until now.

Here are pair of players who share a last name, along with their big league debut date.  The thing that makes these pairs special is that there was no other player with that last name who debuted between those two dates.  As an example, between Bill Karns in 1901 and Nate Karns in 2013, there has not been another Karns in the Majors.  There may have been one before Bill and/or after Nate, but no one in between for 112 years.  This list shows all the name pairs with at least 75 years between the players.
