Idle Hands...

It's not supposed to happen in the National League, the circuit where fewer runs are scored helping pitchers maintain lower earned run averages. Yet there he is, Steve Trachsel, second on the team in wins (11-5) with an ERA of five. It's possible that Trachsel could finish the regular season leading the Mets in wins (he's only one behind Glavine for the team lead) and yet have the worst ERA among starters (he's currently at 5.03 and El Duque is at 4.97). Which leads me to wondering when was the last time a guy led his team in victories and was passed over for a start in the playoffs?
