Morning after, more on Moore

There are multiple ways to quantify and compare what Rays LHP Matt Moore has done in starting the season 8-0. Here's a pretty good breakdown from the Rays:

* He leads the majors in wins.

* At 23, he is the youngest pitcher with 8 wins on this date since CLE Greg Swindell had 8 wins in 1988.

* His 8 wins are as many wins as the entire starting staff of the Marlins.

* He is the youngest pitcher to start the season 8-0 exclusively as a starter since LAA Jered Weaver started the season 9-0 in 2006.

* Is the first lefty to start the season 8-0 exclusively as a starter since BAL Jimmy Key in 1997 (8-0).

* He is the youngest AL lefty to start the season 8-0 exclusively as a starter since BOS Babe Ruth began the 1917 season 8-0 at age 22.
