Captain Cheese Quantified
Yes, I know you've all been waiting for this...
Above is a slightly more technical analysis of Alan Embree's relief outings this year.
We can plainly see from the pattern on this graph that El Capitan del Queso's next outing will be an excellent one. Since Tito doesn't have access to my fine pitching-prediction skills, surely he will be afraid to use Alan in a game we might actually win. Embree's quality outing will be wasted on a game we are losing by three runs or more. Not that I blame him... But surely I am not the only one who has noticed this distinct pattern?
Below is an explanation of PEI and how it is calculated. The larger the PEI, the suckier the pitching.
Got to see Cheese do GREAT live in Cleveland tonight! In case you can't tell, I'm being sarcastic--he stunk like an elephant's butt, and I stared a hole through his soon to be cut chest as he walked off the mound.
The geek in me would find it interesting to see a cumulative line of PEI as compared to a league average, or some such thing. Very interesting stat.
