John Lackey redux

It's nice to see that John Lackey has brought his ERA down sufficiently that he no longer has the worst ERA among all regular starters in the MLB. Though he is still awfully close to the bottom of the heap, with his ERA sitting at 6.13.

What's amazing, though, is that despite it all he still somehow has an 11-8 win-loss record. That says something about the Sox's offense.

Can you think of any major league pitcher in history that has sported a winning record this far into the season, despite an ERA above 6.00?

  1. Not an expert in the subject, but can't think of anyone. Lackey's been very lucky in this respect; quite the opposite of Beckett who has pitched very well this year (including the game I attended) but doesn't have the W/L record to reflect it due to lack of run support.
