Padres Pitcher Cal Quantrill Keeps Doling Out Eight Runs Per Game
In the 2019 version of MLB, pitching is extremely difficult.
Baseballs are being launched with frightening regularity and distance, so any modicum of pitching success should be applauded.
But even with these caveats, the last three starts for Cal Quantrill have been putrid.
The San Diego Padres rookie starter has gotten knocked around real good lately, but these shitty numbers reveal a quirky truth.
Well, this model of consistency has allowed exactly eight earned runs in each of his last three starts.
Last night, it was the Cubs, turn to beat this dude senseless.
That really didn't go well at all.
Before this three-start gauntlet of despair, Quantrill had a perfectly respectable 3.32 ERA.
It now sits at a plump 5.12.
Dude certainly isn't making many friends in the pretend baseball community:
Cal Quantrill has allowed 8 earned runs in each of his last three starts, which must be some kind of record and also sucks some serious ass for my fantasy team.— Skubal Suave (@nikosuave28) September 10, 2019

Or anywhere else, really:
Cal Quantrill is the first pitcher to allow 8 runs in 3 consecutive starts since Albie Lopez in 2001. He's the first Padre since Andy Benes in 1993.— AJ Cassavell (@AJCassavell) September 10, 2019
Cal Quantrill has allowed eight runs in each of his last three starts, and on Sunday he gets to pitch in Colorado against the Rockies. Calling the no-hitter right now.— Christopher Crawford (@Crawford_MILB) September 10, 2019
At least that last one is guardedly optimistic.
