Just noticed that last night’s winner, Todd Coffey has been pitching great the last two months…
He’s pitched 17 1/3 innings, giving up 17 hits, but only 3 earned runs, hasn’t allowed a homer, has only walked 5 (though he’s only struck out 5) and has a 1.55 ERA in that time. He’s also kept the ball on the ground, with 36 ground outs to 15 fly outs (always a good thing when you’re pitching at GABP).
I couldn’t find any game breakdown on his inherited runners vs runners allowed to score for this time period.
But he appears to be getting it and could be a bigger help in the bullpen next year.
