Comments on: Doug Fister can’t buy a win http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/13465 This and that about baseball stats. Tue, 16 Jul 2013 17:01:55 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.6 By: John Garrett Franklin http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/13465/comment-page-1#comment-132385 Sun, 31 Jul 2011 15:07:33 +0000 http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/?p=13465#comment-132385 It's been a tough year for Doug Fister, but also for Dustin Moseley of the San Diego Padres. He also meets the same criteria of WPct 100. The season started out rough as Moseley allowed four runs in his first three starts and the Padres scored zero, yes zero, runs. It is all about bats and as somebody mentioned in an earlier response, the Mariners only have one .300 batter. The Padres also only have only one .300 batter, but unfortunately he is playing first base for the Red Sox this year. And to the responder who lamented the 3-ball walk that beat Fister, trust me, it was about the only lucky moment the Padres have had all year. Let the dogs enjoy just that one little bone.

Seattle has but one player hitting over .300. It's not a pitching problem in Seattle. It's bats.

Messed around with the PI a little bit, and from what I can tell the answer is five, by Jeff Weaver (2001 Angels) and Curt Fullerton (2-15 record with the 1923 Red Sox). Nine other pitchers lost all four CGs that they threw,

Note: The stat line on Fullerton's main B-Ref page says he pitched six complete games in 1923, but his 1923 Game Log shows only five CGs.

If you’re looking at Fister’s 3-12 record and thinking he’d be a terrible pick-up, consider how little run support he’s received. In 16 of Fister’s 21 starts this season, the Mariners’ lineup has scored two or fewer runs. His ERA is 3.33 this season. That’s among the reasons why Seattle may want to keep him.

From June 25, to July 15, he made 5 starts all 7+ IP, for 40 IP and 1.13 ERA. He struck out 62 and gave up only 25 hits - but went 0-4.
In the first 4 games, the D-backs were No-hit, 1-hit, 2-hit, 3 hit, all shutouts. On his fifth start, his team mustered up 5 hits and 2 runs. He left in the 8th winning 2-0, but Matt Mantei gave up 3 runs in .2 innings.

And then there is Nolan Ryan in '87, who led the league in SO and ERA but finished only 8-16. I thought he might be in contention for the WAR > W, but I guess his BBs kept his WAR to only 5.5.
