RE: #43835...

my prediction <...> came true that 9 days off between starts would affect Cliff Lee...

most scouts say that it's difficult to control balls up in the strike zone if you're too strong from too many days off between starts...

So, tonyromo, did you also predict that Cain would get shelled tonight too? The similiarities are remarkable...

Cliff Lee
Sep 30 vs LAA: 7IP 0ER 0BB 8K
Oct 6 (+6 days) vs TAM: 7IP 1ER 0BB 10K
Oct 12 (+6 days) vs TAM: 9IP 1ER 0BB 11K
Oct 18 (+6 days) vs NYY: 8IP 0ER 1BB 13K
Oct 27 (+9 days) vs SFO: 4.2IP 6ER 1BB 7K

Matt Cain
Oct 1 vs SDG: 4IP 6ER 1BB 4K
Oct 8 (+7 days) vs ATL: 6.2IP 0ER 2BB 6K
Oct 19 (+9 days!) vs PHI: 7IP 0ER 3BB 5K
Oct 28 (+9 days!) vs TEX:7.2IP 0ER 2BB 2K

So which is it, tonyromo, is Cain really better than Lee or is your theory just bunk? 'Cause Cain has disproved it twice now.
