April SP Performance


Here is a comparison of the 2011 SP Year to Date versus last year, the 2010 Reds, our own 1992 Bucs, and the Top 25 SP in the NL last year.

%HQS/QS/Avg 61% 60% 69% 77% 74%
%Poor/Blowup 39% 40% 31% 23% 26%

The 2011 SP are generally better (except for walks) than last year, but they still are only giving the team ~60% HQS/QS/Avg starts. They have increased HQS and reduced Average Starts.  However they have a long way to go to match the 2010 Reds SP, or the 1992 Bucs.

The individual SP are below. A HQS/QS/Avg % of 74 would be average. So far only Maholm is average or better.

Pitcher Starts HQS QS Avg Poor BlowUp %HQS / QS / Avg

Karstans 3 0% 67% 0% 0% 33% 67%
