This is a case where the ERA really doesn't communicate the quality of these players. Sosa has a terrible 32-26 K-BB ratio in 45 IP. Tejeda's 22-22 K-BB ratio is even worse in 30 IP. This is a winnable game for both teams, but for some reason I have a bad feeling that Tejeda will continue to get exposed following his Mets outing on Tuesday. If I followed the Braves more closely, I might feel the same way about Sosa.
