Pitching Staffs

August 15, 2013
By

Two of the best starting pitching staffs in the major leagues this year belong to Central Division rivals, the Cincinnati Reds and the Chicago Cubs. For most of the year, the Reds’ brought home the win. Lately, the starters still go well into the game, but nobody in the Reds relief staff (including Chapman) seem to be able to finish the game. As far as the Cubs are concerned, for most of the year their starting staff has had one of the lowest era’s of all baseball. Their relief staff, I believe, leads the major leagues in “blown” saves. At one stretch they had leads going into the 9th inning in 3 straight games and blew every one of them. I would imagine it is very difficult for the starting pitchers to keep their cool as these continued failures add up. When you reach the major leagues and you are paid several million dollars to do your job, you would think that these relief pitchers would have a better success rate. As a fan, I find it very discouraging to watch these games thinking you have a win only to see a late inning melt down by the relief staff. I wish I had the answer, and I imagine the starting pitchers wish their managers would come up with a solution as well.
