Re: Nice piece on Johnny Cueto from fangraphs
One other interesting note when looking at Cueto's stats:
Against the Astros and Cardinals:
27.1 IP, 45 H, 6 HR, 17 BB, 19 K, 9.96 ERA
Against everyone else:
146.2 IP, 133 H, 23 HR, 51 BB, 139 K, 3.88 ERA
Probably more coincidence than anything. His first bad start against the Cardinals was when he was going through one of his tougher stretches of the season. His other bad start against the Cardinals was in June sandwiched in between good starts. That's the game in which he couldn't find the plate at all as he walked eight batters in five innings.
I miss Adam Dunn.
