For the second time in a year, we’re praising Eric Stults on a completely dominating shutout performance. Don’t look now, but this guy is 4-1, and his two career shutouts is one more than Chad Billingsley has. Again, Stults is never going to be an ace, but can performances like this possibly get him more than the “one bad game gets you gone” leash that Torre always seems to have him on?
Well done, Eric.
(Oh, and in case you’re wondering what happened on the day Stults threw his last shutout – Scott Proctor was headed to the DL, we were against trading for CC Sabathia, and Brian Falkenborg was being recalled. Oh, how times have changed.)
