Nice lead-in, Dan.
Random stat I just noticed: Mark Lowe is tied for the Indians team lead this season with four intentional walks allowed. He's pitched seven innings.
Nothing tells a pitcher "I have zero faith in your ability to get people out" quite like asking him to walk 10% of the batters who come to the plate.
How many times does he face the next batter himself? A lot of managers don't want the incoming pitcher to start off his appearance by throwing balls on purpose, so the exiting pitcher has to do it.
The Mariners have allowed 3.31 runs per game this season. The fewest in the 162 game era (non-strike years) is 3.19 by the 1969 Orioles. The only other ones lower than the Mariners rate were the 2011 Phillies (3.27) and the 1975 Dodgers (3.30).
Wow, Marlins P Jacob Turner DFAed. Once a first round pick and top prospect.
I don't think this is true.
E.G. 3 NL teams in 1968 alone allowed less than 3.19 runs per game.
And apparently Sports on Earth has just laid off a bunch of writers. So it was nice while it lasted.
Wasn't Joe Poz one of the guys on staff at Sports on Earth?
