Nate Robertson vs Carlos Silva for the era title

Recommended Posts

Forget Maggs and Polanco in the batting title. The other race that is heating up is Nate Roberston vs Carlos Silva for worst era in the league among starting pitchers. Right now Silva has the upper hand at 6.36 vs nate's 6.09. To qualify for the era title you have to have average 1 inning pitched per game your team has played. Under those rules 90 pitchers qualify and nate comes in at 89th. Nate was also battling for the hits allowed title with Livan Herndez leading the way with 199 and nate right on his tale at 195! Of course his switch to the bullpen is likely to end this goal. Also up in flames is the ER title which nate was leading 101 to 99 over Silva. Well we'll see if Nate can go to the bullpen and chase down Silva and win this thing and claim the prize! The worst pitcher in baseball!

Just think, if only DD had decided to 'upgrade' the rotation instead of counting on guys like Robertson and Willis, we could have Silva too!

Seems to me like a lot of people who are really down on the Tigers right now are the same people that were bitching about not getting Silva.

6.36 robertson 6.36 Silva! What a race with a month to go. Also entering the top ten of worst era's in the league was Kenny Rogers and his 5.25era! And Verlander's performance today could give him a shot at the top 10. His 4.74 is currently 77th best out of 90 pitchers.

All appears lost for nate! He choked away his chance to win this thing last night! 6.08 for Nate and 6.53 for Silva! Kenny Rogers is now in the top 5 with his 5.45. Brian Bannister and Ian Snell round out the worst pitchers of the year top 5.
