Games Started and Innings Pitched: follow up 

This is a follow up to this post where I talked about the pitchers with the most games started over the past 10 years. The new Random Stat for today is Innings Pitched per Game Started. As you can see, the Arizona Big 2 are tops in list and the only two with more than 7 IP/GS. A comparison to the previous Most Games Started list sees Tom Glavine drop off the Top 10 (he's 11th with 6.60 IP/GS).

Interesting things:
Thanks for putting up with my Random Stats feature over there on the right. Maybe I'm the only one who finds it the least bit interesting, but I find that when I search for stats, you can learn an amazing amount of stuff that you wouldn't have learned otherwise. Honestly, I had forgotten about Alex Fernanandez, and I certainly didn't realize that he was a consistently good pitcher after his first couple of seasons. He ran a string of seasons where he posted the following RSAA (33,13,16,32,12,15) - not too shabby. It's nice to re-remember about some of the players who have left the league.
