Jeurys Familia starts for the Bisons Wednesday night at Gwinnett, hoping to continue his success on the road -- where he has a 1.86 ERA in two starts this season.
Familia and former top draft choice Matt Harvey have gotten all the attention thus far in the Buffalo rotation, and have put up some utterly bizarre home/road splits to this point. Check these out:
Combined home: 6 starts, 1-1, 7.30 ERA, 24.2 IP, 26H, 20 ER, 24 BB, 22 SO
Combined away: 7 starts, 4-1, 2.61 ERA, 38.0 IP, 36H, 11 ER, 17 BB, 39 SO
Harvey home: 2 starts, 0-0, 8.22 ERA, 7.2 IP, 9H, 7 ER, 5 BB, 5 K
Harvey away: 5 starts, 3-1, 2.86 ERA, 28.1 IP, 27H, 9 ER, 11 BB, 27K
Familia home: 4 starts, 1-1, 6.88 ERA, 17 IP, 17H, 13 ER, 19 BB, 17K
Familia away: 2 starts, 1-0, 1.86 ERA, 9.2 IP, 9 H, 2 ER, 6 BB, 12K
It's been cold in Buffalo at times, but not really much worse than any other Northeast city. The whole thing is hard to figure out, especially when you talk about a Buffalo team that's 19-13 overall and 10-6 at home.
When the Bisons come home next week, they'll be playing 16 straight games in Coca-Cola Field. They're going to need two top prospects to start getting comfortable downtown.
