The Morning Edition (June 26, 2013)

From Last Night:

  • Chris Sale went 8, gave up 2 ER, had 13 K and left with the lead. He didn’t get the win. The guy who blew the save did.
  • Matt Moore does a Matt Moore impression with 11 K and 6 BB, wins
  • The Red Sox score 11 without a HR
  • Ichiro walks off as Darvish and Kuroda are ordinary
  • Casilla hit as many homeruns as Chris Davis, 1 each

What I’m Watching Today:

  • Felix faces the Pirates (330p Eastern)
  • Zimmermann takes the hill (7p Eastern)
  • Cole Hamels against the Padres (10p Eastern)
  • Kershaw and Lincecum (10p Eastern)

The Big Question:

  • Come on guys, can we leave Chris Sale alone?

Seriously, I want to discredit the win stat too, but can it not keep happening to the same guy. But. BUT! Let’s play a game regarding Astros pitcher Erik Bedard. Let’s explore his ERA and FIP by month:

He’s getting a lot better each month. This is good news. I bet he’s striking out more batters than he was at the beginning of the season.

Oh. Well. I bet he’s walking fewer people!

Well he is, but he’s still walking and awful lot of people. Hmmm, this is tricky. Maybe it’s because he is allowing fewer homeruns?

Yeah, that’s probably it. Sorry, Bedard this probably isn’t sustainable!
