Did they just make up some innings limit to give him this title?
Would you guys prefer Rodney or Kimbrel?
Earl Moore, in 26 innings for 1908, allowed zero earned runs. Can't beat that.
The four unearned runs for both Rodney and Eckersley make me curious. I don't use B-R much, and for the life of me I can't figure out how to find who owns the best single-season RA9 with a similar innings limit. Can anyone help me with that?
Rk Player IP R Year ER ERA ERA+1 Rollie Fingers 78.0 9 1981 9 1.04 3332 Fernando Rodney 74.2 9 2012 5 0.60 6343 Eric OFlaherty 73.2 9 2011 8 0.98 3894 Dennis Eckersley 73.1 9 1990 5 0.61 603
They do this with some reliever every year; I'm telling you those guys have got something figured out...
One thing. . .Rodney in LA was throwing 10% sliders. They ditched the slider, which was a mediocre pitch, and had him go back to throwing fastballs and changeups. That was a good move, but he had drifted off to the slider because he wasn't that sharp with fastballs and changeups (before 2011).
Did anyone notice that Craig Kimbrel struck out 116 of his 231 batters faced?
At 60 IP it's Kimbrel with a 1.01 RA.
