I was just looking over Alfredo Simon for one of the mid season grade threads when I noticed a shocking aspect to his stats.
Simon has pitched very well on the whole, with a 1.78 ERA in 19 appearances... but the Reds have LOST 16 of the 19 games he has appeared.
I get that he often has mop up duty, but this is amazing! The Reds have only lost 38 games on the year and he has pitched in 42% of those losses, whereas he has pitched in only 6 % of the 47 wins.
I think this is, sadly, also an indictment of our offense... once we are appreciably behind, this team does not come back like the 2010 team.
