Jesse Chavez AL ERA leader?!?!

+

Not sure if this is the right place for this, just happened to see the A's - Yankees game on ESPN and saw that JESSE FREAKING CHAVEZ is the AL ERA leader so far this year. The same guy who was our last resort out of the bullpen the year he was with us. My head almost exploded...

As a kid, I idolized Aaron. Now, almost 50 years later, for the first time, I ever hear this story. Amazing.

Interesting article about some tension among the owners about replacing Bud. It also mentions Terry McGuirk, who is apparently considered a long shot contender for the job.

Fangraphs article on the Pitcher's duel

+

Interesting piece, which among other things, says that this was a 1-of-a-kind start (other than the 0:28 BB:K ratio). No mention of the series K totals though
