Holy Smokes - A Pirate Leads the Majors in something good!

Was perusing the Buccos' home page, hoping to see a Sunday win (I did, cool), and found an article that surprised me. Evidently, one of the Pirates' middle relievers (John Grabow, a lefty) leads the Major Leagues in stranding inherited runners. From the article:

Grabow has allowed just one of 19 inherited runners to score in his 34 outings, a 94.7 percent success rate that is the best among all big league relievers.

Who'd-a thunk it? Not too shabby. Keep up the good work, JG.
