Pitching Warning Signs

  1. Harden's injury now being described as his "oblique". Yikes.
  2. I know one of the things that can wear a reliever down is the sheer number of appearances-- which include the time needed to warm up as well as the actual appearance itself. Calero has only thrown 10 innings in 27 games-- which is 60 for a full season-- but he's appeared in 15 games, including 5 of the last 6. That's 90 appearances for a full season and I think that last night we may have seen the impact of such over use.
His seasonal totals are now 10 innings; 7 hits and 9 walks.

And finally the two members of the Little Three who did so well last year. We had to expect some kind of regression, but....

Haren and Blanton's combined 2006:

11 starts.  70.1 innings-- that's 6.4 innings per start-- OK but not great.

84 (!) hits allowed and 17 walks. And 9 HRS for Haren in just 41 innings.

and 44 Ers for a Brutal combined ERA of 5.63

It's only May 4th, but these guys need to step it up--- the sooner the better.
