Disaster starts

New stat from Baseball Prospectus: Disaster Starts, quantified by more runs than innings pitched. How do the Astros do in Disaster Starts?

Moehler: Six
Ortiz: Five
Hampton: Four
Wandy: Three
Paulino: Three
Roy: Two

Yep, so that's 23 Disaster Starts in 108 total starts for a Disaster Rate of 21.3%. I'm too depressed to see how this compares to other teams. Anyone else want to do the leg work?
