Ricardo Pinto has a 6.93 ERA and 1.92 WHIP this season through 115.2 innings, and he's allowed four or more earned runs in nine of his last 10 starts. Park Se-woong has a 4.49 ERA and 1.50 WHIP this season through 104.1 innings, and he's allowed three or less earned runs in 10 of his last 12 starts. The Lotte Giants are the better team, have won seven of the last 12 meetings in this series and have a clear pitching edge in this matchup. Ricardo Pinto has easily been one of the worst pitchers in the KBO this season, as he has a 4-12 record, an ERA of nearly seven and has 64 walks to go with 74 strikeouts. Backing Pinto is simply not an option.
I'll gladly take the Lotte Giants and the cheap price.
