Why we need serious bullpen help.


   Listening to the game today,  and posting in the threads,  I got to wondering after the bullpen came in,  why they are making the games so 'exciting' and 'upsetting'.    Well I used the google,  and found me a treasure trove of bullpen stats.   Was I correct in asserting that our bullpen has the worst BB/9 ratio in the american league?  In a word,  No.  We have the worst ratio in ALL OF BASEBALL.   Yep,  that's right.   Worse than the Orioles,  worse than the Pirates,   worse than the Royals.   Our ratio is 5.7/9 .   MLB league average is 3.9/9.   

    Who is the worst culprit?   I'll give you a hint.   He cost us 5.5 million,  according to baseball reference the most similar pitcher to him is Mike Macdougal,  and fans in Detroit probably don't care that he is gone.   His ratio?   1.   wow.

     The calculation is BB divided by IP,   times 9.  The raw data was gathered at this address:  http://espn.go.com/mlb/stats/team/_/stat/pitching/split/128  

   I have provided a poll for your enjoyment!
