Thought this was relevant after another awesome outing by KK

Some interesting stuff
Quote:
During the three-year period from 2008 through 2010, Kendrick’s ERA was 4.96, which ranked 113th of 127 pitchers in baseball who threw 300 or more innings during that span.

During the three years since, Kendrick’s ERA is 3.48, which is 25th-best of 86 pitchers in baseball and exactly the same as none other than Roy Halladay.

When Kendrick and Halladay have the same ERA since opening day 2011 you know it’s time to re-think a lot of things. About both of them.

....

In his last 15 starts, he’s 9-4 with a 2.42 ERA. In 12 of those 15 starts, he’s allowed two or fewer runs and pitched at least six innings.

....

Kendrick is now 56-43 in his career, and over the last 100 years, only four Phillies with more than 100 starts have a higher winning percentage than Kendrick’s .566 – Hall of Famers Grover Cleveland Alexander (.695) and Steve Carlton (.600), plus Hamels (.594) and Moyer (.583).
He's obviously been sheltered a bit but there is no denying he's been pretty good recently

Edit: after tonight you can make that 10-4 in his last 16 starts with 2 or fewer runs given up and at least six innings pitched in 13 of those 16 starts. His ERA over that span is 2.43.
