Millwood (2-4, 6.62)        Washburn (5-4, 3.22)

A lot of what we perceive to be bad pitching is actually bad luck. For Kevin Millwood, it's bad pitching. Among 72 AL hurlers with at least 30 innings pitched, Millwood's 5.24 FIP ranks firmly in the bottom quarter, right between Joe Kennedy and Ramon Ortiz. Thank goodness there're only three years and $40.5m left on his contract after this season's up. The Rangers better hope that this is all a factor of his trick hamstring, because otherwise, sweet sweet mercy.
