Today's Starting Pitchers GS IP ERA WHIP BAA HR BB K W-L
Zach Duke - LH 13 79.0 4.10 1.52 .298 5 24 30 4-4
Radhames Liz - RH 2 10.1 3.48 1.16 .211 0 4 7 1-0

I think it's fair to say in 2008 that 25-year old Zach Duke has not become the ace the Pirates organization might have thought he was going to be. Or even the reliable starter. Or even all that good, period.

He had that great 2005 debut, going 8-2 with a 1.81 ERA over 14 starts, but he's been getting tagged (.302, .359, .298 BAAs) the last three years and he doesn't strike anyone out. Bad combo.
