I wouldn't qualify myself as totally unlucky but you don't expect this pitching staff to pitch like a bunch of Dewon Brazeltons, do you?
Scott Kazmir - 27.00 ERA, 3.33 WHIP
Francisco Liriano - 13.50 ERA, 3.00 WHIP
John Lackey - 6.75 ERA, 1.88 WHIP
Chad Billingsley - 11.57 ERA, 2.14 WHIP
Mike Gonzalez - 27.00 ERA, 3.00 WHIP
Scott Linebrink - 27.00 ERA, 3.00 WHIP
Even Brandon Webb gave up 3 runs in the first inning and at least settled down for a relatively pristine 2.57 ERA and 1.43 WHIP.
All for a grand total of....10.73 ERA, 2.14 WHIP
At least the bats have been brilliant or else, I wouldn't be tentatively ahead.
