Blown quality starts

Just out on bookshelves today (at least at the Barnes & Noble across from the Dayton Mall) is the 2007 Baseball Prospectus!

I haven't had much time to read it, but I thought I'd share a fun tidbit about the Reds.

As part of a new feature where they track all sorts of managerial decisions, the BP writers came up with a stat called Blown quality starts.

It works like this: Bronson Arroyo carries a quality start into the seventh inning, but loses it because either he screws up, or Majewski allows an inherited runner to score, thus charging the run to Arroyo.

So any guess who lead the league in blown quality starts last season? The Reds, of course, with 15.

This could reflect the Reds bad bullpen, Narron leaving starters in too long, or a combination.
