Can someone please double check my stat?




I am a fan of both the Phillies and Pirates unless they play each other (then Pirates) and noticed something recently: It seemed to me that whenever Cliff Lee pitched, win or loss, the Pirates won their game.

I went back to April 1st, and on the 3rd game of the season, Lee Pitched and Pirates lost. Well CRAP, I guess I am wrong... was my thought. I did not give up, I kept checking.

There was one game that Lee pitched and the Pirates were off, but besides that, it looks like the Buccos are on a 9 game winning streak, There was one odd Phillies game were it was suspended in the 9th and the following day one inning was played as part of a double header that I gave the Pirates credit for, since they DID win the day the game was completed.

I know baseball is full of WILD and DUMB stats, so maybe this is just one of them, but betting people bet loot on far less data. So my totally amateur checking have the Pirates at 9 wins 1 loss when Cliff Lee is pitching. MAYBE if the Pirates are buyers and the Phillies are sellers, we could have Lee by the deadline.
