Talk about fun with numbers:
  • After tonight's strong showing, Mike Mussina and Chien Ming Wang have the same WHIP.
  • Wang's K/9 is precisely league average.
  • If you predicted that Mike Mussina's ERA would be less than half of Phil Hughes' ERA on May 15th in the pre-season polls, you win the prize.
  • MattHaggs reminded us that this year's pitching has actually been better than last years; if we can right the ship for either Hughes or Kennedy, and get Pettitte over his current hiccups we're in good shape (as soon as the offense starts hitting).
