Pitching deep into almost every game, Cole Hamels of the Philadelphia Phillies is among the best. What other premier starters are out west?  The Apocalyptic Horsemen Stats are in my daily coverage. TAL'S HANDY STATS   WELCOME, NEWCOMERS: I am alternating a game-day 2012 ERA For The NL East and a 2012 ERA For The MLB 5. See link section below. In each publication, the number after the title will be based on the quantity of decisions played by the Phillies. Top Performance Yesterday: Barry Zito Hurls A CG Shutout In Denver REASONING For The Stats: These numbers are a glimpse over the pitching coach’s shoulder, because they warn of difficulty ahead. The rule of thumb is that the bullpen load should be no more than 33.3%, which is a 6-complete average per scheduled outing. That is why going a distance into the game is 6.1 frames or more, which is 70.4%. The added detail of 1 out per contest is 54 innings over the long summer’s course. This also shows the mound masters that give the relievers a well deserved night off, but there is a rust factor due to lack of backend chances. If there are any questions, please ask.   STARTING & RELIEF PITCHING: CLUBSP INNSP ERSP ERASP PERRP PERRP INNRP ERRP ERA Phillies25.1051.7869.7%30.3%11.0054.09 Halos26.0113.8172.2%27.8%10.0010.90 Brewers21.2124.9960.2%39.8%14.1116.91 Giants24.1145.0173.7%26.3%08.2022.08 Yankees23.1136.9470.0%30.0%10.054.50   TOTAL PITCHING & STARTS OF 6.1 INNINGS OR MORE: CLUBINNERERAARMSCONVGMSPER Phillies36.1102.4811425.0% Halos36.0123.0022450.0% Brewers36.0235.7511425.0% Giants33.0164.3611425.0% Yankees33.1184.8611425.0%   KEYS: ABRVS.MEANING ARMSPitchers With 6.1 Innings Plus CONVConverted Start Of 6.1 Innings Or More LastLast Conversion ResultOutcome Of Last Start UpdateNext Start Or Status Change Note:Listing is in order of conversion, including time of day.   STARTERS WITH OUTINGS OF 6.1 INNINGS OR MORE: CLUBHURLERCONVLASTRESULTUPDATE 1PHLHalladay1 of 14/5WED NIGHT 1LAAWeaver1 of 14/6WED NIGHT 1MILGreinke1 of 14/7 1SFZito1 of 14/9 6:27 PMCONV 1LAAWilson1 of 14/9 6:29 PMCONV 1NYYNova1 of 14/9 9:27 PMCONV   LINK-UP BELOW: The preview of the next Nitecap Insight (1st paragraph) will be at Tal’s Handy Caps on Facebook; it is Nitecap Insight:  Second Helpings. Join for notification of future glimpses, which will be almost daily. You’ll also know immediately when my isportsweb post goes up. It might be worth your while because I have seen delays of 2 hours on feeds. Check out my previous publication (Greenhouse Cholley), and the 21 storylines–so far–for 2012 on the Phillies page or my author archives, where there is an excerpt photo. Tal’s Handy Stats is daily coverage. I am alternating the 2012 ERA For The NL East and the 2012 ERA For The MLB 5. Thank you, to all who bookmarked the Phillies page, because feeds are erratic at times.   If you came from Fox Sports, there is currently an unreliable feed situation under at least two Yardbarker banners.   TAL'S HANDY LINKS
