Threw 89 pitches last night, Andy Pettitte threw 90.

Morrow got two fewer swing-and-misses (8) than Pettitte.

It would seem that Morrow just needs to find his fastball, but the fact that he's still looking for his first win, while Pettitte has recorded three, is not a matter of run support or the way the ball bounces.

Got his butt pounded in Kissimmee yesterday. That means by the Astros.

No big deal. Most likely.

Five picks, no pans in last year's Guide. Mine: "Consensus second most unlucky starting pitcher in either league last year. Averaging five different 'should have been' ERAs (ERC, xERA, FRA, FIP and xFIP), his ERA should have been 3.68."

The other four essentially said the same thing, more eloquently: Brandon Morrow's ERA in 2011 didn't remotely reflect how well he pitched.

What about last year?

The Bill James Handbook's ERC (2.73) says his ERA was just about what it should have been.

The Baseball Forecaster's xERA (3.91) says he in fact was fairly lucky last year.

I don't understand how two systems that analyze the component stats can reach such different conclusions.
