BDD: Offensive Pro- and Re-gression
At Baseball Daily Digest, I take a look at the bullpens in baseball that have taken a step forward as well as those that have taken a step back.
[...] Put pictures of National relievers (who have pitched 10 or more innings) up on a dartboard and try to hit one with an ERA under 4. You have a one-in-ten chance. Who is the half-eaten banana in the city landfill that is the Nationals’ bullpen? Lefty Ron Villone. In fact, his ERA is not only lower than 4, it’s lower than 0.01. He’s yet to allow a run. Manny Acta might want to let this guy pitch every inning of relief for the rest of the season.
