Just how shitty has our starting pitching been? Shit is heaped higher than the lone port-a-potty at a Mexican food convention.
Starting Pitching Through 26 Games:
*Have allowed 5+ runs 9 times.
*Haven't managed to last 5 innings 8 times.
*Allowed 36 homeruns.
*Have an era of 6.60 and whip of 1.77. I know era/whip can be deceiving, but there's no deception in those numbers, that's flat-out horrible.
*Brett Myers is the era leader with a robust 5.35.
*7 innings is the longest outing this season (thanks to Myers and Ho Park).
*Given up 180 hits in 137.2 innings, along with 53 walks, and 10 hit batters. That's 243 baserunners in 137.2 innings...shitty!!!
*Here's the kicker- have averaged only 5.28 innings per start. Steve Carlton is appalled.
