How about this day on the mound?

Postby DEF » Thu Aug 07, 2003 5:41 am

In one of my leagues today I had FIVE starters going. Fortunately, we can start seven pitchers a day (2 SP, 2 RP, 3 P) so I didn't have to pick and choose (though I did have to bench relievers Hasegawa and Marte). On a day like that (not that there are many days when you've got five starters going) you just hope to get a couple wins and that no one gets lit up to wreak your ERA and WHIP. But I got a heck of a lot more than that. Check out these numbers:

Pedro 9 IP, 1.00 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, 11 Ks, WIN
Wood 7.1 IP, 2.45 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, 10 Ks, WIN
Gagne 1 IP, 0.00 ERA, 0.00 WHIP, 1 K, SAVE
Wagner DNP
Maddux 6 IP, 0.00 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, 5 Ks, WIN
Miller 6 IP, 1.50 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, 7 Ks, WIN
Willis 8 IP, 3.38 ERA, 0.75 WHIP, 6 Ks, WIN

Total: 6 APP, 5 Wins, 1 Save, 40 Ks, 1.69 ERA, 1.04 WHIP

And that is with Marte's save left on my bench!

For the week, I have six wins and four saves in 10 appearances. Add in the fact that in my other league I got a win and a complete game from Halladay and a save from Mantei in my only two appearances and that's one hell of a day on the mound. I don't mean to gloat (well not too much anyway) but I've never had a single day like that, and don't expect to enjoy one like that again anytime soon (though I still have Wolf, Buehrle and another Harden start to go this week). Hopefully everyone else will get to enjoy a day like this (unless you own a team I'm playing of course).

Nice day. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
