    Most interesting thing about Mujica is that he really has been pretty much the same guy. He doesn’t walk anybody, he doesn’t strike many out. He’s going to be vulnerable to runs of hits because of that, particularly given the Cards’ subpar defense (which tends to be a bit better due to substitutions when Chief comes on).

    Only real trend I am seeing is in an ultra small sample size, which is a declining K rate. Hasn’t been striking many people out in August and September even by his usual standard. OTOH, is that a reliable indicator when adding five more strikeouts largely makes it disappear? Evaluating bullpens is hard.
