Why we lose - 2014 edition

Last year I created a simple method of analyzing which elements of the team contribute to losses, which is explained in this FanPost.

In short, the starting and relief pitchers are expected to have an ERA below 4.00, the offense is expected to produce more than 4 runs per 9 innings, and the defense should not allow more than 1 earned run.

Below are the results for 2014 losses (failure to meet the standards above are shaded in red):

Observations:

  • Four one run losses and two blowouts.
  • April 8 sucked - nobody did their job.
  • The starting pitching has contributed to every loss except for April 16, when JDLR threw six innings and only two unearned runs, the only "wasted" start in 2014. The starting pitching was the sole contributor to two of our losses.
  • The relief pitching has been pretty good, contributing to only one half of our losses.
  • The offense faltered in seven of the losses, five on the road.
  • The defense failed in three games, two of which were close.

Eat. Drink. Be Merry. But the above FanPost does not necessarily reflect the attitudes, opinions, or views of Purple Row's staff (unless, of course, it's written by the staff [and even then, it still might not]).
