Replacement Pitcher Summary Update

Why the Brewers' pythagorean record is so bad:

The Brewers have been outscored 85 to 153 in games that have been started by their replacement pitchers (basically, anyone not Davis, Cappy or Bush). Let's compare that to the games started by their #2,#3 and #5 pitchers:
            RS   RA  PythW%
Overall 396 459 .433
#2,3 & 5 311 306 .507
Other 85 153 .255

I think it's fair to assume that Sheets and Ohka starting would have let the Brewers play at least .500 ball in the "other" row.
