The Morning Edition (June 24, 2013)

From Last Night:

  • The Pirates get 3 in the 9th to tie, 4 in the 10th to take the lead and almost give it back as they outlast the Angels
  • Morales walks off on the A’s in 10
  • The Mets get 8 as Harvey goes 6 scoreless
  • Cashner is brilliant, but Street blows it in the 9th
  • Latos K’s 13 Dbacks and the Reds survive a rough inning from Chapman
  • Toronto slugs their way to 11 straight wins

What I’m Watching Today:

  • Cliff Lee visits Petco (10p Eastern)
  • Bumgarner faces Ryu (10p Eastern)

The Big Question:

  • How can MLB only schedule four games for today?

Clayton Kershaw has thrown 113.1 IP, 8.8 K/9, 2.5 BB/9, 2.06 ERA, 2.16 FIP, and 2.9 WAR.

Mat Latos has thrown 103.1 IP, 8.7 K/9, 2.44 BB/9, 3.05 ERA, 3.02 FIP, and 2.3 WAR.

They aren’t dramatically different, but Kershaw is pretty much better across the board. Kershaw is 5-5 and Latos is 7-1. It’s time to stop caring about pitcher won loss record, it simply isn’t an indicator of individual pitcher performance.
