Alright guys as if we didn't need more reason love Perez I have some more. I ran some numbers on the offensive statistics with and without Perez. Here are the results:
In 10 games Perez has started we have scored 54 runs for an average of 5.4 RPG.
In the 15 games since Perez has come back the team as a whole (with and without Perez starting) has scored 74 runs for a total of 4.9 RPG.
In the 15 games prior to Perez coming back we scored 53 runs for an average of 3.5 RPG.
In all games without Perez prior to him coming back we scored 251 runs in 66 games for an average of 3.8 RPG.
Those differences in run production are ridiculous and Perez's impact is undeniably huge. We score over 1.5 more RPG with Perez in the starting lineup. And taking the most recent 15 games before Perez we scored 1.4 more RPG including starts by backup catchers, and in just games Perez started the difference is almost 2 whole runs at 1.9 more RPG.
