|6-5, 4.83||10-9, 4.02|
joel pineiro has thrown 126 innings this year --- 63 useful innings, and 63 useless ones:
|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.
