532 posts in this topic

As DOB pointed out, first Braves 3-0 start since.... 2007. They swept the Phillies to start the year. Phillies went on to win their first NL East title.

Then the Braves went home and got blasted by the Mets 11-1.

A much more intriguing lineup than in past years. Interesting that Cunningham is leading off rather than Peraza.

The only stat more useless is pitcher wins.

It is not more useless, but it is not a true indicator of a pitchers worth. Shouldn't it just be ERA?

Taking it further, with apologies to Don Sutton, I think Quality Starts is a better measure of a starting pitcher. It shows no favor to a pitcher who is backed by good hitting. The run support a pitcher gets should never figure in to a pitcher's value.
