Luke Hochevar's Modest Turnaround

After six starts, Luke Hochevar owned an ERA of 9.00. We've been long conditioned to know that ERA isn't a perfect stat for evaluating pitchers, or even, necessarily, an above average one. Nevertheless, even with a blunt tool like ERA. A 9.00 mark sends a pretty clear message: I am not good at pitching.

Well, since then, Luke Hochevar has sorta turned things around, in a very modest way. In his last seven starts, he's posted a 4.46 ERA, which, while not great or even really good, isn't "let's right in the streets" bad. It's still below average. Given that he's allowed 4 homers in 42 innings, it actually could be a little worse. But hey, at this pace, we'll have that ERA under 6.00 in another three starts or so.
