    Winning Percentages and Openers

    Last year, teams went 33-33 when their starter pitched exactly 1 inning. Ten years earlier in 2008, teams went 3-10 (.231) when their starter pitched exactly 1 inning, which means it happened over five times as often in 2018 as in 2008. In addition, since many 1 inning starts in 2018 were not because the starter stunk, the winning percentage in those situations was over double in 2018 than in 2008. Ten years before that in 1998, teams went 2-14 (.125) when their starter pitched exactly 1 inning. Like 2008, the winning percentage was horrible.

    Playing .500 (or better) ball in the #5 SP games is impressive.
