@sir boxington I think you're on the wrong site. You're looking for OldCrotchetySprotswriterCliches.com, I think.

Looks like its Cumpton.
@mwr505 The new rule this year allows the team to add a 26th player for the day of the doubleheader. Instead of thinning the bullpen through this stretch of games, they'll bring up a AAA guy to start. I believe the Cards are doing the same thing.

It almost has to be Stolmy. He was scheduled to pitch yesterday, according to P2's pitcher forecast, but it looks like Hollingsworth started instead.
whygavs I understand that, and I am really not trying to be picky. But your line about how teams are now recovering much more quickly then in the 30's-50's seems a bit off. Those teams were worse then their 100+ loss counterparts in the 162 games era, so we may expect a slower turnaround. Again, great read, and I really enjoy the blog.

Good post. You seemed to have overlooked the fact that the number of games changed. 100 losses looks a lot bigger when you play 10+ less games. Maybe you want to adjust to a relavant winning percentage when comparing over different eras. Rate>counting in this instance.
