Royals go for the 2 game sweep today.
Buehrle (1-0, 6.00 ERA) vs. Francis (0-0, 1.29 ERA)
Here is a comparison of the two bullpens so far this season:
|Royals||4||0||1||18||23||6.65||2.35||0.78||0.318||95.4 %||40.9 %||8.7 %||1.57||3.38||3.61||0.4|
|White Sox||0||1||0||13||12.1||7.3||3.65||2.19||0.422||57.0 %||53.3 %||18.8 %||10.22||5.71||4.30||0|
A few numbers that stick out:
- 95% LOB% - Sweet, not going to be maintained, but much better than the 57% that Chicago has now.
- I would like to see the K/9 a little higher, but 2.35 walks is outstanding.
- xFIP between bullpens is actually pretty close. The HR/FB and LOB% explain the differences in ERA and FIP
