That wasn't why it was eaten.
Matt Cain - worth a pickup?

As for Matt Cain, his HR/9 is 1.36 in the minors this year, and when coupled with a 4.51 BB/9, I dont think he will be wildly successful this year regardless of his high strikeout totals. For the future though, I've seen him throw and the sky is the limit.
Oh, and to put his HR/9 into perspective, if he were able to keep the same HR/9 in the majors (which I wouldnt expect him to do since he would face more powerful and disciplined hitters) 1.36 would be 13th highest in the majors, and 6th highest in the NL.
