Adam Wainwright, no-hitter through seven

Recommended Posts

Cardinals have the best pitching in MLB. Staff ERA of 2.98.


Five starters with ERA's under 2.72


Actually the Cardinals are not if you use the advanced stats like you can find on Fangraphs which take into account things like ballpark factors.  The Rangers have a 73 ERA- and Cards 81 ERA-.  100 is average. Below that is better, which means the Rangers are 27% better than average and the Cardinals only 19% better. The Rangers outstrip the Cards in xFIP, FIP- and xFIP-, as well.  Using some of the more "fair" traditional stats, the Rangers have a 1.19 WHIP, the Cards 1.22, the Rangers a .234 BAA, the Cards .245.  I could go on, but clearly the Rangers have the best pitching staff in the major leagues right now.  You give the Rangers that Busch home field and they'd put up way better pitching numbers than those Cardinals pitchers.  The advanced statistics show that, anyway.
