Here's five other tidbits:

  • Soriano has a 16:1 Shutdown to Meltdown ratio.
  • Cormier is the only reliever with a 1:1 SD:MD ratio.
  • Benoit is the only reliever without a meltdown (well, and James Shields).
  • Cormier is also the only reliever with a negative WPA.
  • Benoit has a 17% whiff rate. Stephen Strasburg has a 17.2% whiff rate.
