Mota and the Mets

By way of Joe Sheehan in today's BP, I noticed this story on Mota and the Mets:

http://www.nypost.com/seven/09122006/sports/cheap_thrills_sports_joel_sherman.htm

"The stat department divined that Mota's percentage of changeups thrown was way down from when he was an elite set-up man with the Dodgers in 2003-04.... It is a small sample, but in his first nine appearances Mota has a 0.93 ERA, 12 strikeouts and just two walks in 92/3 innings."

I have the impression that the Indians have a strong statistical approach to player evaluation. I guess it surprises me that the Mets saw something that the Tribe didn't.
