i was typing on the cafe here and overheard on ESPN that Jason Marquis won his 12th game tonight and i thought to myself
, wow hes absolutely terrible. how could he have 12 wins this year??
so i looked at his numbers and noticed some VERY VERY strange statistics....
ok 12 W - NL League Leader
24 HR ALLOWED - NL League Leader!
86 ER ALLOWED - NL League Leader!
so you must be saying WOW to get 12 wins he must be getting like 10 runs per game of support! (i said this myself) so i did a little checking and to my surprise, Marquis is 12TH!!! in the NL in run support with 5.69 runs per 9. this is LESS than his ERA!
so with all that, i felt like it was probably the strangest string of statistics ive ever seen.... i was also wondering if anyone has ever led their league in W and HR's allowed but then when i saw ER allowed, im wondering if anyone has ever allowed the most runs in the league and also had the most W's!?!?!
This thing with Marquis is he can be semi dominating, shut you out or let up 2 runs...but he is horribly inconsistant. Plus I recall twice this year where he took the beating to save the bullpen.
so he will give up like 9 runs in a game or some crap like that every so often. So when he wins, he wins...but when he loses he takes a BEATING.
That can kind of explain the number of wins/ERA/support less than ERA/
