In the 2014 National League, only 29 of the 69 regular starting pitchers with 100+ IP were dependable starters. This means that those 29 pitchers worked at least three or more consecutive seasons of 100+ innings. Kyle Lohse and Yovani Gallardo are included in this… [More]

2014 NL SP Rankings: FIP and True Brewers

2014 NL SP Rankings: Brewers Improvement

Series Preview: Brewers @ Padres

The Padres should look similar to fans of the 2012 and 2013 Brewers. Specifically, San Diego‚Äôs squad has encountered one particularly bad month. Otherwise, the team stuck around .500, and lately have shown signs of breaking into the type of hot streak that could make… [More]
