DGS Update 

I first brought up the concept of the Darned Good Start on April 13th, but have done little with it since. Lets see how the M's starting pitchers have fared this season.

Pitcher (Darned Good / Quality / Ugly, M's record DGS , M's record US)
Ryan Franklin (3/3/1, 1-2, 0-1)
Bobby Madritsch (0/0/1, 0-0, 0-1)
Gil Meche (2/2/3, 2-0, 0-3)
Jamie Moyer (5/3/0, 4-1, 0-0)
Joel Pineiro (2/0/1, 2-0, 0-1)
Aaron Sele (4/3/1, 3-1, 0-1)
Mariner Total (16/11/7, 12-4, 0-7)
Who woulda thunk that 4 out of 5 Aaron Sele starts would be darned good? Franklin continues to show his hard luck ways, and Gil can't decide if he is first half Gil or second half Gil. Jamie is getting stretched out, as his Darned Good Starts have gone up from 5+ to 6, 6+ and now 8 innings, the last three qualifying as Quality Starts. Look for that pattern to emerge with Joel soon as well.

For more coverage on this topic, over at SportSpot, Dr. Detecto started up a nice thread showing how adept Mike Hargrove has been at knowing when to pull pitchers, and when to let them ride another inning.
