Just noticed, my only team with a losing record is 0-8 in extra inning games, so far. That's right, 8 of our first 34 games have gone extra innings and we've lost all of them. Average team in the league has played 3 extra inning games. Extra inning games have quite literally ruined this team's record. And amazingly, this team's strength is it's bullpen: with the best seasons of Rob Nen, Chris Hammond, Mark Hutton, Matt Mantei, and Rick Helling (his 27 inning wonder season) all in the bullpen. But their stats are horrible so far (Helling has a 1.65 WHIP over 7 IP, Mantei has a 3.33 over 9 IP, Hutton has a 2.50 after 10 IP, and Miguel Batista with a 1.24 RL WHIP is sitting at a 2.63 after 19 IP).
[dippedincrack, that's the other difference between your and calhoop's teams, he's 4-0 in extras and you're 0-5.]
