I'd be willing to bet that not only did Eric Milton see a bunch of hitters counts (probably more than anyone else on the staff), but that he also probably got hammered in a good amount of pitchers counts as well, missing his spots, and making mistakes. That's the only way you end up with numbers as poor as Milton had last year.
