What the crap is up with Crain? His peripherals are much better this year, he's got a 2.33 GO/AO rate, and a bazillion hits against him. 18 air outs and 4 homers? What?
I dunno how to get his types of balls in play data, but is there any explanation for this other than horrid luck? I mean, I cringe when he comes into the game because his results have been so bad this year, but the stats make it look like he's the anti-2005 Silva.
Is he just getting hit harder than other pitchers, serving up too much meat for the hitters, or what? I'm confused. Anyone have any explanations?
