Â Ok, guys, time to forget about the weekend from hell!Â It was like something from an Alice In Wonderland nightmare.Â Madness… pure madness.Â Now let’s take our frustrations out on the Orange Birdies!Â Tonight, our boys will hope to rebound against (RHP) Jeremy Guthrie (4-6 5.52 ERA) of the Baltimore Orioles.Â Here’s the skinny on Guthrie (Age 30)…
According to Mets.com,
“The struggles continued for Guthrie in his last outing. The right-hander fell to 4-6 on the season, allowing two home runs for an AL-worst 16 on the year. He pitched six innings, giving up six hits and striking out two.”
“On January 19, 2007, Guthrie was designated for assignment and was picked up by the Baltimore Orioles.
During the 2007 season, he became one of the best and most consistent pitchers in the American League, through June 21, ranking 2nd in ERA and allowing more than 2 earned runs in just 1 out of 10 starts. He was also 1st in the AL in WHIP.
After being called up to fill a spot in the Baltimore Orioles’ bullpen and then moving into the starting rotation, Guthrie enjoyed a breakout year in 2007. Through the end of July 2007, Guthrie had a 7-3 record in 17 starts to go with a sparkling 2.89 ERA and a 1.027 WHIP (second only to 2-time Cy Young award winner Johan Santana), albeit in only 124.7 innings of work. Guthrie’s rise to unexpected success in the first half of the season led to consideration for the American League’s Rookie of the Year Award.”
