Haren- 6-2, sub 1.70 ERA, sub 1 whip... Beckett, 8-0, 2.95 ERA, 1.05 whip
The stats don't lie, Haren's having a better year... But factor in that Beckett plays for the Boston Red Sox and nobody west of Ohio knows anything about the Oakland Athletics... and you've got Josh Beckett as your AL Starter
I'm not saying Beckett's bad, because he's been awesome this year, but Haren deserves it but he won't get it because nobody knows anything about him.
"Oh, that Lankford and McGee, the trio of 'em. They're a one-man wrecking crew."
