Jake Westbrook's ERA is now down to 5.17, which isn't great given the lack of hitting we've seen league-wide this year, and in his last two starts he's now thrown 15 innings with just one run allowed, gotten 27 grounders against 14 fly balls, and... struck out four and walked six. That's not the usual way one makes a move toward adequacy, but Westbrook continues to be his very Westbrookiest and nothing more. His GB:FB ratio is now at 1.76, the highest it's ever been in his career, and he's allowed just three home runs, which puts him on pace for 10 over a full season.
So how good can he be without placating the gods of FIP? Can he reach a league-average ERA while striking out a batter for every one he walks?
Meanwhile, I think the main thing to take from Saturday's game is this video of Matt Holliday's long, long home run. Watch it whenever Albert Pujols's continued struggles become slightly too much to bear.
