Is there a way to use PI to find all pitchers with no wins and 5+ postseason starts?

So I ran the control query against B-R ("Most postseason starts, career"), and Pettitte is Number 1 with 35. I'm not a subscriber (can we say that in here?), so I don't get the full list, but I do live in Atlanta, so I know Glavine is going to also have a lot of postseason starts, and it seems like Catfish Hunter, Jaret Wright, Ford, and Clemens would also have 10+ qualifying starts. Certainly, these are not generally guys I would have a problem giving the ball for Game 7 of a big series.

It would be interesting to generate a list of "Bombs/Game Started, postseason", where you look at these bad games in comparison to overall starts.
