RR should be ashamed; his starters pitch a good game only to turn it over to the likes of Turnbow (oops, lots of similarities here and easy to confuse these two) and Loe-
Sit both of these clowns down and call up a rookie who can give up tying and winning runs…
more like Turnloe
And are their records: Veras 0-1, Rodriguez 0-1, Dillard 0-1, Loe 2-1(2 blown saves for wins), Perez 0-0, Axford 1-2, Parra 0-1 (ERA now 9.82)
Why ERA without context sucks: In the June 13 game against KC, Veras entered a tie game in the bottom of the 11th with the bases loaded and promptly walked the first batter he faced on five pitches. That walk-off walk was charged to Kameron Loe.
Nathan, that would be a complaint against W/L records. Not ERA. If Loe had gotten that batter out, he would not have scored.
The circumstances affect both W/L records and ERA. The game winning run (and consequently the loss) was charged to Loe even though it was walked in by Veras. I get that Loe allowed the baserunner to reach in the first place, but something about that still strikes me as unfair.
In any event, the broader point (and I’m sure everyone can ride this bus) is that Veras has not pitched like a 1.29 ERA pitcher.
