[...]Brandon Morrow finally gets a ground-ball double play » Baseball-Reference Blog » Blog Archive[...]...

]]>David/23, I was thinking the same thing.

]]>It may be a lot closer than describing the 1962 Braves as Tommy and the other Aaron, but still...

]]>I was trying to say that he was at his worst with 2 outs, where there is no chance of a double play. 233 total base runners, 80 of them with 2 outs.

153 base runners with zero/one out. 110 of those were singles, walks or HBP (Which are double play opportunities).

Is it the norm around the league for pitchers to be at their worst with 2 outs?

]]>Zero/one out: 118 singles and walks/HBP. (153 total base runners)

Two outs: 80 total base runners.

Two thirds of his base runners come with 2 outs in the inning.

Is that normal or an anomaly?

]]>To clarify on Chris Carpenter's current 10 game streak of no homers in his 2011 wins as a starter. This streak actually extends back to 2010, and now stands at 14 games since then.
