Kevin Millwood and Jeremy Guthrie are not getting their due

Jeremy Guthrie (3.64) and Kevin Millwood (3.71) are currently ahead of Felix Hernandez (3.80), C.C. Sabathia (3.86), and Wade Davis (4.01) among American League ERA leaders.

Guthrie and Millwood join King Felix and Zack Greinke as the only A.L. pitchers in the top 30 for ERA who have losing records.  Both pitchers are among the league's top 10 for innings pitched.

Guthrie (1.12) is in the A.L. Top 10 for WHIP, tied with Justin Verlander and ahead of the likes of Jon Lester (1.13), David Price (1.14), Greinke (1.16), and C.C. Sabathia (1.21).  He also is tied for the league lead in quality starts.

The Orioles have four pitchers (Millwood, Guthrie, Matusz, Hernandez) among the league leaders in tough losses. Millwood is tied with John Danks for the A.L. lead.
