Comments on: Bad Week For A Relief Pitcher This and that about baseball stats. Tue, 16 Jul 2013 17:01:55 +0000 hourly 1 By: Brian Fuentes Thu, 26 May 2011 19:22:15 +0000 I don't mean to toot my own horn or anything, and I'm sorry to bump an old topic, but I just pulled it off again.

May 18th through the 23rd: 0-4

By: Raphy Sun, 15 May 2011 15:06:10 +0000 @ 8 For some reason PI makes it sound really complicated, I'm not sure why.
Steve's search was simply consecutive relief appearances with a loss.

Using the streak finder, selecting reliever and setting L=1; this will give you his results.

By: hysteria1978 Sun, 15 May 2011 14:40:13 +0000 I hate to sound like a noob, but I have attempted to recreate the search that produced this list, and I can't figure it out, in looking at the shared link the title was...

Longest Streak with A.L=1 From 1919 to 2011, as Reliever: Results

I was just wondering if any one knows what the "A.L" perameter means, and how it is specified in the search form?

Looking at the date ranges, it still seems that League set up a record regarding how quickly he lost four games.

By: Neil L. Sun, 15 May 2011 10:02:05 +0000 For League's sake, thank goodness for rain in Cleveland, although he likely wouldn't have been used.

I wonder how the week from h*ll will affect his performance going forward? A closer is supposed to be able to shake it off but....

I also wonder where the jury is now on the Brandon Morrow for Brandon League trade between the Jays and Mariners? Both pitchers had "good stuff" at the time of the trade. Morrow, 2 years younger, is scheduled to start against the Twins today, I believe,

Bedrosian,'s 1984 mini-funk was unusual in that he entered the 4-game stretch with a miniscule 0.54 ERA over 33.1 IP and 134 BF

He then more than tripled his ERA in a span of four appearances.

Those four games kicked off a stretch where Atlanta lost 12 of his 13 consecutive appearances; including two starts.

Who knew Cy would come calling a couple of years later?

1987 was a weak year for Cy Young candidates in the National League. For a closer to win the award on a team that finished 80-82 does not seem right. This of course is the year that Nolan Ryan finished 8-16, but led the league in ERA, strikeouts, SO/9, and even SO/BB ratio.

Bedrock should have the award stripped from him and sent to Juan Marichal - who didn't even garner a single vote in the three seasons that he won 25 games. Every other pitcher that has won 25 games since the award was created has won it.

By: DoubleDiamond Sat, 14 May 2011 22:59:22 +0000 There's at least one guy on the list who had a Cy Young award in his future!

By: BSK Sat, 14 May 2011 17:53:32 +0000 I remember that Carmona season. I believe at least two of the games were against the Red Sox.
