Stat of the Day: Starters and Relievers

6

Interesting to note the discrepancy between starter's and reliever's records this season. Now, this is probably due in part to our large amount of comeback and walk-off wins, but I find it interesting. The team is now at 82-61 (.573), but the starters do not have a very good record. Our starters so far have not had great records: Tim Hudson: 15-7 (.682) Derek Lowe: 12-12 (.500) Tommy Hanson: 9-11 (.450) Jair Jurrjens: 7-5 (.583) Kris Medlen: 5-1 (.800) Mike Minor: 3-0 (1.000) Kenshin Kawakami: 1-10 (.091). Now I can't remember any team this good with only two 10-game winners on the team and a guy with a 1-10 record, but the Braves are doing it. Overall, their starters are a mere 52-46 (.531). The relief corps, however are a different story. They are 30-15 (.667), and save many games from disaster. In no-decisions started by Hanson, the Braves are 8-2. By Medlen, 8-0. They're 5-2 in Jurrjens' and 4-1 in Kawakami's no-decisions. I hope the Braves continue to do well, but the starters need to pitch a little better.
