2008 - Bronson Arroyo 0-3 7.56 1.84 23 9

2008 - Todd Wellemeyer 2-0 3.77 1.13 31 10

Wellemeyer spent his first 4.5 years in the Majors as a reliever and the results were very meh. Borderline bleh even. Then he gets picked up by St. Louis off of waivers, is put in the starting rotation, and has since posted a 5-1 record with a 3.70 ERA while striking out 7.5 per 9IP and walking 3.7 per 9IP. This leads me to believe this one irrefutable fact: Dave Duncan is a witch.

Here's a fun nugget: Bronson Arroyo has pitched in a game following a win in 3 of his 5 starts this year. In those games he has pitched 15 total innings with an ERA of 10.80, taking the loss in all three games. My point in all of this is, it's all Bronson's fault. Everything. Well, except for the parts that are obviously Dunn and Juniors fault.

I think it's right about time for the first three-game win streak of the season, don't you?
