things you wanted to know about Jeff Bagwell


That's how many of Jeff Bagwell's 1,529 career RBIs were scored by Craig Biggio. 372 times. 24.3% of Bagwell's RBIs were runs scored by Biggio and 20.4% of Biggio's 1837 career runs were driven in by Bagwell. Biggio has been on base for 93 of Bagwell's 449 homers - nearly 21% of them - and Biggio was the runner scoring from third on 29 of Bagwell's 102 sacrifice flies. Bagwell drove in Biggio 127 times on singles, 82 times on doubles and 7 times on triples. And of those 372 times Bagwell drove in a Biggio run, 31 of them were after Biggio reached base on a plunk.

Jeff Bagwell hit 6 grand slams in his career, and Craig Biggio was on base for 5 of them.

Bagwell drove in 2 Biggio runs in 35 different games, and once drove in Biggio for 3 runs in a single game - that was the day Bagwell hit for the cycle and drove in Biggio on a single, triple and a homer.

Of Bagwell's 128 career HBPs, 17 were recorded in games in which Craig Biggio was also plunked. The Astros were 10-5 when both Biggio and Bagwell got hit by a pitch. Bagwell was hit 5 times with the bases loaded, but never with Biggio on third to score a run off the plunk. Biggio's 7 rbi plunks never scored Bagwell either, and as far as I can tell, Bagwell never scored on a Biggio rbi of any kind.

Bigg always batted before Bags (usually lead off to Bags hitting 3rd)

But I found 8 games in which Biggio had at least 1 rbi, Bagwell had at least 1 run scored, AND Biggio's and Bagwell's slots in the batting order would have made it possible for Bagwell to score on a Biggio rbi... but it never happened.

The Biggio leadoff, Bagwell third arrangement was used in 1,058 games, with 2nd place going to a lineup with Biggio batting 2nd and Bagwell third, which was used 405 times. For some reason, Biggio had 3 games batting cleanup - in '91, '97 and '98 - all of which had Bagwell batting in front of him in the 3rd spot. (4th is the only batting slot in which Biggio has never been plunked, by the way).

That is a really cool stat. I'd never thought of that kind of thing before.
