Here Comes the Bullpen

Don’t look now, but the Padres have the lowest bullpen ERA in the big leagues:

IP ERA H/9 HR/9 BB/9 SO/9
49.0 2.94 8.08 0.73 3.31 7.53
Stats through April 19, 2006; courtesy ESPN.

Alan Embree, Scott Cassidy, Scott Linebrink, and Trevor Hoffman have allowed three runs among them in over 26 innings of work. Heck, even Dewon Brazelton threw two scoreless innings on Wednesday. Isn’t April fun?

  1. Now if the pads could get the same production out of thier bench they would be in good shape

  2. Those new guys see Hoffy and Linebrick and know they got to improve their game. I’m sure there is a lot of pride in the bully, that when they get the call, they do the job, especially the padre bully which has performed well for a while.
