Pedro's monthly career splits:
June: 3.20 ERA
July: 3.08 ERA
August: 2.48 ERA
September: 2.76 ERA
That's some kinda monthly decline there
He misses more starts though towards the end of the year, though. He always seems to finish with like 29 from missing 4 or 5 late season starts (except last year). His K's and wins are lower in September than any other month and his WHIP is higher than any other month. Not to mention he posts a modest 23-18 career September record (was 2-4 last September).
Correct me if I'm wrong, but ERA is what counts, and he is lower in August and September than in June and July. And in his entire career, he has 6 less starts in the finals 2 months as opposed ot the middle two months. That's practically nothing.
You may now resume removing your foot from your mouth
I didn't know we were playing in a 5x1 league, where the only category is ERA. This topic is from a fantasy standpoint.
WHIP in the middle 2 months... 1.05
WHIP in the final 2 months... 1.04
W/GS in the middle 2 months... .54
W/GS in the final 2 moonths... .54
K/9 in the middle 2 months... 10.1
K/9 in the final 2 months... 10.5
So basically he's the same in W and WHIP, better in ERA and K's, and you're claiming he gets worse at the end of the year?
LBJ, you have me convinced. I think you only need part of your cunning for the rest of this thread.
