Pineiro Unit
6-5, 4.83 10-9, 4.02

joel pineiro has thrown 126 innings this year --- 63 useful innings, and 63 useless ones:

ip h bb so hr ERA avg slg
thru jun 22 63 64 14 34 7 3.86 .266 .432
since jun 22 63.2 93 14 30 9 5.80 .339 .562

note that the bb, so, and hr rates are all nearly identical; the difference in performance is explained entirely by outcomes on balls in play. it's hard to sustain success when you pitch to contact as devotedly as pineiro does. . . . .

randy johnson's pendulum is swinging the opposite way from pineiro's --- he had an era over 5.00 through june 20, but 2.95 in 12 starts since then.
