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?

I checked just the NL Central teams through games of 8/10. Here's how it shakes out:

Cardinals - 20/114 = 17.5%
Cubs - 17/110 = 15.5.%
Brewers - 27/111 = 24.3%
Astros - 25/112 = 22.3%
Reds - 26/111 = 23.4%
Pirates - 23/111 = 20.7%
