For those who don't know what the definition of a quality start is...please see below: (from wikipedia) In baseball statistic, a quality start is awarded to a starting pitcher who completes at least six innings and permits no more than three earned runs. The quality start might be the worst stat idea in the history of sports in my opinion. What is the point of this stat and why do we need it? So let's say you pitch 6 innings, walk 12 guys, throw 7 wild pitches, give up 10 hits but only 3 runs...that's a quality start folks...by definition. I just hate it and think its useless. Thoughts?
