How did Garrett Claypool


not even get honorable mention all-conference in baseball? He had 8 wins which is in the top ten of all Pac-10 pitchers. He was second in the conference in ERA with a 2.05 ERA.  and opposing teams only hit .171 against him which was the lowest of any pitcher in the Pac-10.( His hits to innings pitched ratio was the second lowest of any D-1 pitcher in the entire nation!!!! )  In fact even if you include unearned runs he only gave up 2.39 runs per nine innings.

Meanwhile Mount of USC who got honorable mention all Pac-10 had a record of 5-6 and an  ERA of 4.32,and if you include unearned runs gave up a shade under six runs per nine innings which is almost 2.5 times the number of runs that Claypool gave up. Hitters hit .291 against him which is 120 points higher than Claypool.

Triggs of USC also was honored with a 2-7 record,  and a 3.95 ERA. Opposing batters hit .257 against him  which is not bad, but nowhere close to what Claypool did. '

Is there some rule that says you have to be a weekend starter to be All Pac-10?  I mean Claypool pitched twice against Fullerton, twice against Irvine, and twice against UCR none of which are chopped liver. In fact if you add Claypool's stats against Irvine and Fullerton with his stats in Pac-10 games you get an ERA of 2.43 which, at almost any other school besides ASU, would make you the Friday night starter.

He should have been first team All Pac-10, but if you are not going to do that it is utterly inexplicable why he would not be even honrable mention...
