16    Jonathan Sanchez 2009-07-10  11.85  

Of the 16 pitchers, 12 of them have TERRIBLE ERAs, or are in the minors/injured.

King Felix, Verlander, and Ervin Santana are having great seasons, while Homer Bailey is having a good season.

Dallas Braden is going to be one of those names that kids 20 years from now ask you who the hell that guy thought he was pitching a perfect game. The perfect game list should now come with a record scratch noise.
