The best bullpen in the majors so far in 2010 at not allowing inherited runners to score belongs to the Cleveland Indians. Their pen has allowed five of 61 runners (8.2%) to score. (Contrast that with the rates of the Angels and Diamondbacks, who are both at just over 50%.) However, the Indians' bullpen has allowed more than a hit per inning, has a combined ERA of 3.90, has walked 51 batters in 83 innings and has struck out only 54. Ace Chris Perez has lost two games that he entered with two-run ninth-inning leads and has walked more batters than he has struck out. Laffey, Sipp, Smith and Wright have all done good jobs at stranding runners that they've inherited, but realistically, this is one of the weaker bullpens in the American League.

So far, though, only one of his inherited runners has been walked in. What's amazing about Williams is that, of the 14 hits he has given up, 10 have been doubles. He has allowed 11 inherited runners to score; nine have scored on doubles.

Another fun Randy Williams stat: He has walked or struck out 28 of the 64 batters he has faced. That's 43.8%, obviously a very high percentage. Career-high rates for three other pitchers known for doing the same thing: Mitch Williams, 1987, 47.5%; Bobby Witt, 1987, 44.6%; and Nolan Ryan, 1977, 42.8%. So call Randy Williams Wild Thing II.
