One more Bronson post

Everyone knows Bronson Arroyo is stuck on two home runs. Less known is that he's also stuck on two hits. He's now batting .083. Of his 26 plate appearances, he has 2 home runs, 2 walks...and 14 strikeouts. Man, and we thought Wily Mo (28 strikeouts in 104 PA) was bad. On the topic of Pena, the tally so far: Bronson -5, Wily Mo 3.

  1. I love this line of thinking! But I think there might be a better way to look at this. What about ERA and Runs-Created (per 27 outs)?

    A team full of Wily Mo's would be scoring 7.60 runs per game (I am not so sure this is the equivalent to ERA)! Where as Bronson is limiting teams to 2.40 Runs over 9 innings.

    Bronson's Earned Runs are 17, and Wily Mo's Runs-Created are 18.3. This might be a better way to look at it. Although at some point, Wily Mo will have significantly more ABs that Bronson has games which will make this comparison unfair.

    Go Wily Mo!!!
