|sp:||David Wells (5-7, 5.18) vs Braden Looper (8-9, 5.23)|
I would totally rip on Cardinals starter Braden Looper here, but the truth is, David Wells has been even worse. Looper actually has decent numbers at home (3.51 ERA, .251/.309/.374). He also gets lit up pretty well after 50 pitches (.333/.392/.527), which raises the question of why he’s not in the bullpen, where he’s been all his career, but I digress.
Wells? I dunno, it’s probably the plate umpire’s fault. Go Padres!
