Five straight losses is enough to render even the new, optimistic me verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves. Topic: aging superstars surrounded by mediocrity. Discuss.
Randy Wolf has lowered his ERA from 6.52 to 4.57 over his last six starts, going 5-1 during that stretch. Hmmmmm, isn’t that special? Brett Tomko, on the other hand, has lowered his ERA from 6.75 to 4.05 over his last seven starts (which, by the way, is referred to as doing better!), and instead of receiving pitcher of the month awards, was rewarded with an exciting 3-4 record over that stretch. Isn’t that special?
So, I’m not exactly speechless.
