Matt Cain is better then you

Was just curious to see how many people saw that graphic from last night's game that Cain has the WORST career run support in the entire ML's of any pitcher with 100+ career starts. Thought that was a pretty telling stat, and seemed about right when like 40 % of his career starts the Giants haven't even mustered more then 1 run or so. It just goes to show how overrated the whole Win stat is for pitchers when some really good pitchers can get so few wins, and guys with 5.50 ERA's can win 14 games a year on some teams. I just thought this should be pointed out. Also, are there any pitcher value stats that take into account things like that?
