Since 1990, 10 pitchers have thrown perfect games. The nine who aren't Matt Cain combined to throw 56 2/3 innings in their next starts, with a combined 57 hits allowed, 40 runs allowed, 35 earned runs allowed, 17 walks allowed. That's 8.2 baserunners per start, a 1.31 WHIP, and a 5.56 ERA

Since 2000, 10 pitchers have allowed 18 or more baserunners in a game. One, Jimmy Anderson, never started again. The rest combined to throw 57 1/3 innings in their next starts, with a combined 48 hits allowed, 21 runs allowed, 19 earned runs allowed, and 17 walks allowed. That's 7.2 baserunners per start, a 1.13 WHIP, and a 2.98 ERA

Interesting. High pitch counts, maybe a lack of proper frame of mind the next time out. But really: 6.1 innings, 4 ER, 2 walks. Not good but not horrible. Getting into the seventh on average is pretty decent. Figure a couple of those nine got pounded, a few must have had good games. I don't think fantasy leaguers will be sitting him. How do you even get to allow 18 baserunners in a game? Damn.
A 5.56 "team" ERA isn't horrible? Really, Mike? Whatcha been smoking?
