Who kills your team?

Dan Uggla AP

When I saw Matthew Kory’s article about this teased in such a fashion, my first thought was “Dan Uggla!” But then I realized that he meant which opposing player has historically played exceptionally well against your team. Which could also be Dan Uggla. Dude has a .900 OPS against the Braves and a .713 career OPS for ’em. The man can beat Atlanta in so many ways.

Anyway, Kory’s article is a lot of fun. Especially the part where Mike Napoli is the best all-time hitter against the Angels. I never stop giggling about how wrong they were to get rid of him. Statistically, strategically, politically. It was just wonderful.

    Ryan Howard kills the Phillies. Oh wait, did you mean opposing player?

    Opposing pitchers: all of them.
    Opposing hitters: all of them.

    I’m a Cubs fan, so….yeah.

    Brad Ausmus is doing a pretty good job of killing the Tigers.

    We have always done horrible against the Rays in general (except the last 3 games), but especially against David Price. When he faces the Jays, he’s Cy Young.

    Offensive players that own us, historically, include Big Papi, Robbie Cano, Nellie Cruz and Desmond Jennings.

    Feels like Ibanez has always killed the Nats, but they do it to themselves now.
