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 outcomes played by the Phillies. Top Performance Yesterday: Shaun Marcum Pictured During 7 Solid Frames In LA    Check out Philadelphia Phillies storyline: The southpaw rattler   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.   Note:  All old ERA tables are automatically updated.
