Check out these words from KC Star columnist Sam Mellinger regarding Jeremy Guthrie’s last three starts:
“Here’s the complete list of starting pitchers who’ve gone at least seven innings with no earned runs in three or more consecutive starts this season: R.A. Dickey, Ryan Dempster, and Jeremy Guthrie.
Here are the guys who did it last year: Cliff Lee (twice), Clayton Kershaw, and CC Sabathia.
Point is, guys who aren’t good pitchers don’t usually do things like this. You can find some. Jason Hammel did it in 2010. Zach Duke did it as a rookie in 2005. Others have done it during their peaks, then fallen off, like Ubaldo Jimenez. But it’s mostly a star-studded list: Oswalt, Santana, Halladay, Cain.”
This might just be a blip on the radar for Guthrie but I’ll take it. What say ye Hawkster?
