32 pitchers have as many or more wins than the Red Sox
Look, I thought Dan Haren was going to be a Cy Young contender. And his teammate Jered Weaver should have a great year too.
And A. J. Burnett always starts off well.
All three have MORE wins than the Red Sox at this point.
It's mid April and the Red Sox have barely plural wins.
And there are 29 other pitchers who have tied the Red Sox in wins.
Some I can accept.
Roy Oswalt, Clayton Kershaw, Roy Halladay, Josh Johnson and Tim Hudson were supposed to be good.
But Matt Belisle? Justin Masterson? Logan Ondrusek?
For God sake, Kevin Correia has as many wins as the Red Sox! NO PIRATES pitcher should be out winning the Red Sox.
The others? Max Scherzer, Matt Harrison, Carlos Zambrano, Hiroki Kuroda, Derek Hollan, Aaron Harand, Edwin Jackson, Shaun Marcum, Edinson Volquez, Jhoulys Chacin, Rafael Perez, Jose Valverde, Armando Galarraga, Gio Gonzalez, Chris Sale, Josh Tomlin, Alexi Ogando, Zach Britton and Esmil Rogers all have matched the Red Sox.
And oh yeah... Bronson Arroyo.
(Can we still get Wily Mo Pena in the lineup?)
