Being a Brewers fan this season is becoming an exercise in extreme patience to say the least.  On days when the bats come alive it seems we can't get the pitching to help out.  On days when the pitching has been awesome we can't hit to save our lives.  So it got me to thinking about what gives, especially with our pitching staff.  Well, the numbers tell us that this staff as a whole is not exactly the best in the major's in almost every single category.  However, it's not the whole story.  (all stats courtesy of FanGraphs) Team Pitching Staff Numbers: Stat Number MLB Ranking NL Ranking ERA 4.96 28th  16th WHIP 1.54 29th 15th K/BB 2.16 21st 13th K/9 8.33 3rd 2nd P/PA 3.92 4th worst 1st worst RS avg 0.37 18th 7th TB 381 5th worst 2nd worst OPS .781 26th 15th BAA .283 28th 15th FIP 3.77 19th  7th Here's how the individual pitchers break down:NameWLSVGGSIPK/9BB/9HR/9HR/FBERAFIPxFIPWAR Zack Greinke 3 1 0 6 6 35.0 9.00 2.57 0.26 4.2 %...
