Daisuke Matsuzaka now has a 10.95 ERA for the Mets

Daisuke Matsuzaka is three starts into his Mets career and it’s hard to imagine there being a fourth.

He lasted just three innings today against the Braves, allowing six runs on seven hits and two walks, and now has a 10.95 ERA overall.

That includes allowing a total of 29 baserunners in 12 innings, which is pretty amazing. Opponents have hit .365 with an .453 on-base percentage and .577 slugging percentage in 64 plate appearances versus Matsuzaka. By comparison, Miguel Cabrera is a career .321 hitter with a .399 on-base percentage and .570 slugging percentage.

And of course because merely having a 10.95 ERA isn’t agonizing enough to watch, Matsuzaka works ridiculously slow on the mound. He pitches like an ugly person with a horrible personality.

    His ERA and his number of minutes between pitches are equal.

      like Thomas implied I am alarmed that any one able to earn $5546 in one month on the computer.

    I’m still here in Boston waiting for him to finally unveil his famed gyro ball!!!!!!

    Well, I am shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you.

    If you subtract his performance, the Mets are winning.

    Which really just says that Paul Maholm is not likely to be the ace of the playoff rotation for the Braves.

      To be fair to him, he gave up 3 runs. Also, after Daisuke the Mets gave up 7 more runs and would have lost anyway.

      As an addendum, the first ‘he’ I reference was Paul Maholm

    It is agonizing watching this guy “pitch”. I’d rather have oral surgery.

    They were in the bottom of the 2nd at the 1-hour mark today.

    Even the Tribe knew how bad he stunk up the joint in AAA and THEY wouldn’t bring him to CLE

    A couple of good years in Boston but he was never the same after pitching on the WBC.

    • dirtyharry1971 - Sep 2, 2013 at 10:58 PM

      well he had one good year in boston with that 18 win season but really if you look at the innings pitched and the games started he didn’t average very many innings for a starter. In otherwords when he was starting you better get the bullpen up very early.

        Also, if you look beyond the W-L and the ERA in 2008, he didn’t pitch that differently than his other years. He just got a lot luckier as far as BABIP and stranding runners was concerned.

    What’s really sad, he’s actually doing better than I thought he would.

    He can carry Yu Darvish’s jock around.
