Okay so the title of this thread is a little facetious. The point is that Ross Detwiler is having an outstanding season. He now has a 2.99 ERA in 111.1 IP. In fact, as of this writing Detwiler is 3rd in ERA on a pitching staff in which none of the 5 members of the rotation are out of the top 20 in the National League in that category. Is it fair to start to ask if Gio Gonzalez is the second best left-handed pitcher in our organization?
Did you know that none of the Nationals pitchers is ranked outside of the top 15 in WHIP in the National League?
Jordan Zimmermann - 1.08 (5th)
Stephen Strasburg - 1.13 (10th)
Gio Gonzalez - 1.14 (11th)
Ross Detwiler - 1.18 (14th)
Edwin Jackson - 1.18 (15th)
