In my ongoing pursuit of showing off how dumb pitcher wins are, I will run a series where I show some pitcher who pitched really well and didn't win, and another who pitched less well and did. I am unlikely to update every day. I'm not even likely to update "frequently." But I'll do it sometimes, if that's cool with you.
It's too bad defending American League Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer doesn't know how to win. Scherzer's line:
8 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7 K, No decision
Scherzer just doesn't follow the win-knowing ways of Jordan Lyles:
5 IP, 5 H. 4 ER, 1 BB, 5 K.
Just another reminder that the talking head who says "knows how to win" is spouting bullshit.
