Fun fact time! This is Matt Cain's 143rd start in the major leagues. In just over 25% of those starts (36, to be exact), Cain had a no-decision or loss after allowing fewer than two earned runs in six innings or more.

That's insane. Absolutely insane. You can check the math:

2005: 3

2006: 4

2007: 12

2008: 9

2009: 7

2010: 1 (and counting!)

Bookmark this for 2025, when some twit is claiming Cain shouldn't get a Hall of Fame vote because he didn't have enough wins.
