Joe Thatcher on the season:
With the bases empty he is perfect - 0.00 ERA/0.90 WHIP/.189 BAA & just 4 walks in 20 innings pitched.
With runners on base - 5.94 ERA
With runners in scoring position - 8.71 ERA
With RISP and 2 outs - 13.50 ERA
With RISP he actually has as many walks as hits.
With RISP and 2 outs he has allowed only 3 hits, but has given up 5 walks in just 5.1 IP
And remember, this does not include the 6 inherited runners he has allowed to score.
So why would the Padres EVER bring him in or leave him in with men in scoring position, especially if there are two outs?
