July Pitching Stats

Lots of talk about who should be the closer lately. I thought it might be useful to see just how well everyone on the team is pitching lately. The starters:

Name IP R H K BB RA WHIP
Bush 21.0 11 26 18 3 4.71 1.38
Capuano 23.3 17 33 12 3 6.56 1.54
Davis 26.3 15 26 16 15 5.13 1.56
Jackson 15.3 12 15 5 11 7.04 1.70
Ohka 5.0 2 6 3 1 3.60 1.40
Villanueva 5.3 3 7 4 2 5.06 1.69
TOTAL 96.3 60 113 58 35 5.61 1.54

The relievers:

Name IP R H K BB RA WHIP
Capellan 7.7 1 6 6 3 1.17 1.17
Eveland 3.3 2 5 6 3 5.40 2.40
Gonzalez 7.0 4 10 3 2 5.14 1.71
Helling 7.3 1 3 9 1 1.23 0.55
Kolb 3.7 2 3 3 1 4.91 1.09
Shouse 7.0 3 5 5 4 3.86 1.29
Turnbow 3.7 14 10 4 8 34.36 4.91
Wise 5.7 1 5 3 2 1.59 1.24
TOTAL 45.3 28 47 39 24 5.56 1.57
TOTAL w/out DT 41.7 14 37 35 16 3.02 1.27

Turns out the bullpen is actually pitching pretty well, with the exception of, well, you know. My personal preference for closer would be A) whoever just finished the eighth inning pitching well (i.e. Matt Wise last night), B) Rick Helling, for the time being, C) Jose Capellan (who has been used only once since the break) and so on. If you're curious, Bob Wickman is approximately option QQ. When (if?) Jorge de la Rosa comes back, I'd like to see him get a shot at the job as well.

What's everyone else's opinion on who should get the job?
