Reds 5, Cubs 2
David Weathers has taken the position as campaign director for the Aaron Harang Cy Young drive.
"Everyone says it's (Jake) Peavy in a runaway," Weathers said. "Lay out the numbers."
Harang is 16-4 with a 3.61 ERA. He's pitched 216 2/3 innings, allowed 194 hits, walked 51 and struck out 198.
Peavy is 18-6 with a 2.39 ERA. He's pitched 203 innings, allowed 151 hits, walked 61 and struck out 220.
So if the season ended today, you'd have to go with Peavy. But Harang has two more starts.
“Give me one guy for one start," Weathers said, “and I can't think of anybody in this league I’d take over (Harang). We lean on him, and he delivers.”
