Perhaps lost in the shuffle of the fanfare for Monday night's Pirates win -- their 82nd meaning they'll finish with a winning record for the first time since the (first) Bush administration -- was that Rangers starter Yu Darvish dropped a 1-0 decision.

It marked the third time this season that Darvish has taken a 1-0 loss. That's the most 1-0 losses in one season for a starting pitcher since Orel Hershisher took four in 1989.

Here's the list of starters who ended a season with more 1-0 losses than Darvish since the beginning of the 1916 season. It's pretty short considering the number of seasons since then:

1. Roger Craig five 1963
1. Jim Bunning five 1967
1. Fergie Jenkins five 1968
2. Walter Johnson four 1916
2. Lee Meadows four 1916
2. Billy Pierce four 1955
2. Don Drysdale four 1964
2. Hershisher four 1989

That's it. There are a litany of guys to have lost three 1-0 contests like Darvish has this season but only eight in major-league history have had more.

I'm not going to go to great lengths in order rail on how much I dislike wins-losses as a primary indicator of a pitcher's performance because that's been done to death this year by myself and many others concerning guys like Max Scherzer Chris Sale and Clayton Kershaw. Instead let's just focus on the obvious lack of perspective it provides in Darvish's case.

Darvish lost three games by the count of 1-0. What if his offense provided him with just two runs in each of those three games? Remember Darvish has absolutely nothing to do with what his offense provides. Had the offense done so in those three games all of a sudden the record goes from 12-8 to 15-5.
