Chris Jaffe has a fun post up over at the Hardball Times. He tracks which pitcher has, historically, dominated your teams. No, it’s not “that rookie lefty no one has ever heard of.” I think 95% of all baseball fans think THAT’s the guy who kills their team, but it isn’t. It tends to be pretty good pitchers which own/pwn your local nine.
Well, almost always. Freakin’ Eric Show owns my team. How that happened is a mystery wrapped in a riddle wrapped in some exceedingly bad Braves teams in the 1980s. But it’s still surprising.
Today it’s the National League. He’ll do the AL next week.
