Angels Pitching Staff and Stats

Earlier in the year the Angels starters had the best ERA while the bullpen had the worst.  So I asked a friend of mine at Stats Inc.  if he could find out if any team in baseball has made the playoffs in this scenario.  This is what he found out for me:

Everything is since 1954 (as far back as I can go for Starter/Relief ERA)

* No team has ever led MLB in starters ERA and been in last in relief ERA

* No team has ever led AL in starters ERA and been in last in relief ERA

* No team has ever led NL in starters ERA and been in last in relief ERA

1 team since 1954 has had the worst bullpen ERA in majors and still made the playoffs (1997 Seattle Mariners – lost in first round)

3 teams since 1954 have had the worst bullpen ERA in AL and still made the playoffs (1990 Boston, 1997 Seattle and 2005 Boston – all lost first series)

No NL team since 1954 has had worst bullpen ERA and still made playoffs
