Comparing Cueto, Latos and Bailey Statistics against Pirates and Cardinals

Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports

There was some discussion and debate following my look at the possibility of Johnny Cueto starting a potential one-game playoff. As a result, I decided to breakdown the stats of the three starters whose names were brought up within the discussion.

Besides Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos and Homer Bailey were both mentioned as possible starters in a potential wildcard game matchup.

Here are the home/away splits for the three Reds hurlers:

Homer Bailey Home/Away Splits
ERA IP H HR AVG
Home 3.14 91.2 71 6 .213
Away 3.63 106.2 103 12 .256
Mat Latos Home/Away Splits
ERA IP H HR AVG
Home 2.89 87.1 74 8 .228
Away 3.34 110.1 111 4 .260
Johnny Cueto Home/Away Splits
ERA IP H HR AVG
Home 2.08 26.0 19 3 .200
Away 3.90 27.2 24 3 .235

Below is the breakdown of the starters numbers at Busch Stadium and PNC Park this year:

At Busch Stadium

Finally, here are their overall numbers against both the Cardinals and Pirates this season:

vs. Cardinals
ERA W-L IP AVG

Of course, all of these breakdowns against NL Central rivals could be meaningless if the Reds wind up winning the NL Central. However, if if the team doesn’t then who do you want starting against the Pirates or Cardinals? Do these statistics influence your decision?
