Oh Yeah, Me Like This

Because baseball is very much a what-have-you-done-for-me-lately sort of game, here are the last 10 from some of the Giants starters, but not Matt Cain:

Innings 43 56.2 56 61.2
Giants 5-5 6-4 10-0 6-4
Pitcher 5-4 5-4 6-0 5-4
Hits 61 53 66 58
runs 39 26 25 25
ERA 8.16 4.13 4.02 3.65

So, yeah, the third column (sorry for the lack of alignment) of numbers are Zito's. The second is Tim's, the final one is Bumgarner's and the first is Vogelsong's. We all know Zito's history with the Giants, but that is like deciding to give Tim the first start in the series because of his history with the Giants. Zito was left off of the 2010 roster not because of his history with the Giants but because at that time, he was going out on the mound and trying to convince batters not to hit the ball rather than challenging them. He's not doing that now. We have to line up Matt, Madbum and Zito. And then Timmy. Pending, of course, a final start for each of these guys. The Giants could have three 15 game winners. ps. Guess who passed up Andrew McCuchen for the league lead in batting average?
