    Check out these stat lines:

    W   L   WL%   ERA    G   GS  GF  IP     H    R   ER   HR  BB   SO  ERA+
    +---+---------------------------+---------+--+---+---+-----+-----+----+
    13  26  .333  5.56   90  61  15  362.3  443  244  224  44  121  220  78
    12  27  .308  5.74   92  70   6  373.0  465  274  238  46  118  153  76
    

    Can you guess who is the red one and who is the blue one? Well, here’s the answer:

    Via Baseball-Reference.com:

    The red line is Sergio Mitre’s career stats to date. And, the blue line is the career big league pitching numbers for his pitching coach, Dave Eiland.

    The Yankees should take the mirror out of Mitre’s locker and just install a picture (no pun intended) of Eiland.

      I don’t see the pun?

      It’s weird to me to see two pitchers with seemingly different styles arrive at a similar destination.
