Did you control for IP in you stats? Matt Cain only pitched for a couple months, I believe, so it may just show unfamiliarity with him on the part of opposing hitters.

Well, as the 2004 list shows, the effect if familiarity likely worked against pitchers like Moreno and Seay who had late season debuts. However, many surprises from this year (e.g., Crain, Dempster, Williams) appear regardless. What that means, I'm not sure just yet!
