What have we learned in the first half of the LIDOM 2021 season?

Although some teams have shown to be playing a better level of baseball, none of the six squads have been able to take advantage of the chaos of the first half of the regular season.

Four of the six teams that make up the Dominican Republic Professional Baseball League (LIDOM), are about to contest the twentieth date on the regular series calendar, which indicates that half the season will have been played.

The general trends have been extremely marked throughout the tournament, as well as the particular ones for each of the squads, which has defined the position table so far.

Each team has gone through highs and lows throughout the first twenty games (some more than others), yet some have shown a much higher level of baseball than others, a highly visible contrast between the good guys. teams, bad guys and one that still doesn’t define their identity.

ESPN Digital he reviews the first half of the season and with this he tries to establish what has been learned so far.

THE POSITIONS

After midseason, the standings of LIDOM meets with Eastern Stars in first place with eleven wins and eight losses, followed by Giants of the Cibao with eleven wins and nine lost games, the current national and Caribbean champions, Aguilas Cibaeñas, they arrive in third place with ten wins and nine setbacks, Lions of the Chosen One and Bulls of the East are tied with nine wins and ten losses, while the Tigres del Licey they are last with eight wins and twelve losses.

THE BEST PITCHING BODY

The Eastern Stars they have been by far the team whose pitchers have done the best job in the first half of the tournament. They are the leaders in ERA with 2.69 and leaders in walks and hits per inning pitched (WHIP) with 1.12. Likewise, the other teams barely hit .208 (best in that department).

THE BEST OFFENSIVE

For the second year in a row, Giants of the Cibao they have the upper hand when it comes to offense. With a .252 batting average, .318 on-base percentage (OBP) (second best) and .364 slugging percentage (SLG), good for a .682 OPS (leaders). They lead the league in hits (171), home runs (12), doubles (40) and runs scored (92), while ranking second in RBIs with 82, three behind the current leader.

BULLS ARE MACHINES TO PUNCH AND PUNCH

The Bulls of the East they are the absolute leaders in transfers received with 118. No team has reached even 65 so far this tournament. This explains why they are the OBP leaders in the tournament (.359) with a .041 window ahead of the Giants.

At the same time, they are strikeout machines. The batters of the bullfighting team lead the league in strikeouts received with 180, seven more than the Lions of the Chosen One, which are in second place.

THE LIONS OF THE CHOSEN HAVE A CHALLENGE AHEAD

The Lions of the Chosen One They are an inconsistent team that has stayed in the fight throughout the tournament, taking advantage of others who are even more inconsistent than they are.

Despite not being leaders in any of the offensive or pitching departments in the tournament, the Selected has done a good job overall. However, with a negative record so far, they have been a team that has not been able to demonstrate whether or not it is made for the semifinal stage.

Seconds in batting average (.244) and fourths in OPS (.650), while they are fifth in ERA (3.61) and fourth in WHIP (1.27), which shows that the team has a challenge ahead, especially in when pitching is concerned if they want to define themselves as a good team.

A TURBULENT FLIGHT AWAITS THE EAGLES

The reigning champions started the season by winning their first four games in a row and since then, they have been on a steady up and down, losing seven of eight games during one point in the season, but have also benefited from inconsistency in general within the league to stay in the classification.

They started the year as favorites to revalidate their title, but in the middle of the season, the champions are not seen with the same momentum from the beginning.

THE LICEY TIGERS ARE A BAD BASEBALL TEAM

Blue fans need to understand the following: Tigres del Licey they are not a good team. Despite having a solid pitching staff, silly defensive mistakes on basic plays and the complete disappearance of his offense all hint that this will be another long year for the team.

Not even the controversial move of firing the team manager and the coach with just twelve games left in the campaign seems to have paid off, despite a four-game winning streak.

The Tigers They are heading for another early exit from the tournament and having to answer a lot of questions for the future.
