Chris Carter and the Problem with Inconsistent Hitters

Most of the time in baseball analysis, we’ll look at a player’s full-season statistics only. While this generally covers the full breadth of their production, it can sometimes obscure more pertinent details. For instance, Adam Lind (RIP) hit very well overall last season, but his ability petered off toward the end of the season. With that said, it’s important to not mistake...

Tribe Targets: Chris Carter

If you’ve seen my two previous posts then you are aware of the Indians’ struggles hitting for power this past season, you are also aware that they have expressed an interest in two recently non-tendered sluggers, Pedro Alvarez and Chris Carter. Both could potentially help the Indians offense by providing much needed power to the lineup, the question then becomes which one is...

Chris Carter’s mammoth home run increases Astros’ lead to 4-1 over Royals

In the fourth inning, it was Lorenzo Cain who hit a long home run to give the Royals a lead over the Astros in Game 3 of the ALDS. In the seventh inning, Chris Carter one-upped Cain with a blast of his own, increasing Houston’s lead to 4-1 and making the hill that much more difficult for the Royals to climb.

Chris Carter is whiffing at a lot of strikes

A lot has been made of Evan Gattis’ ineptness at the plate, but what about Chris Carter’s? Carter has always been labeled as a “hacker.” He’s notoriously known for being an all-or-nothing type player, meaning he either hits the ball a mile or doesn’t hit it at all. The Astros’ slugger had a breakout year in 2014, posting a career high 1.8 WAR, which would have been...

Vol. 3…Life And Times of C. Carter

Uh-oh, I feel a rhyme coming on. Chris Carter's schmotato was born on August 4th wearing the Astros hat, 40 ounces he doesn't pour forth cause that forty-oh is his bat. If you can't respect that your whole perspective is wack, maybe you'll love him when he goes by Charlie Really Black. Man, he was conceived as Hurry K'd Carter, but that was just for fun, big hands, I know you...
