Know Thine Enemy: South Side Sox
|2010 - Mark Buehrle||12-10||29||29||2||0||0||0||187.1||210||88||83||16||45||87||3.99||1.36|
Buehrle has faced the Twins three times this year and has gotten better at every turn. In total he's turned in 23 innings of seven-run baseball, and par for the course his two better (really, none of them were bad) appearances have been at Target Field. If Minnesota can tag him for four runs in eight innings like they did in Chicago back in April, it might be a good night.
He's a good pitcher. But he's the quintessential Sox pitcher. Beating Danks and Floyd just wouldn't be as great if we don't take down daddy Sox starter at the same time. Let's give Buehrle one more reason to hate (see: envy or wish he played for) the Twins.
|2010 - Carl Pavano||16-11||28||29||7||2||0||0||205.0||199||81||79||18||34||111||3.47||1.14|
In the "why win-loss records for pitchers are stupid" category, Pavano has four starts this season in which he's allowed just two earned runs and not won the game. 0-3 and a no-decision when you allow two runs is ridiculous. Thanks.
Let's get Carl win number 17 right here, just so those big "Win" guys can start talking about Pavano as a contender for the Cy Young award.
In Pavstache We Trust.
