I’m back on the horse, and the first thing that caught my eye this morning was the pitching matchups chart in our print edition. With the Twins beginning a huge series in Cleveland, here’s a look at how Paul Byrd and Carlos Silva have fared in their past three starts.
Pitcher W-L ERA (Avg. hits and walks per game)
Silva 1-0 1.29 6.9
Byrd 2-1 9.45 17.5
Of course, when these two squared off Aug. 6 at the Metrodome, Cleveland won 4-0.
