Year of the Pitcher


150+ IP, 3.00 ERA or lower (since 1979)

Top 6
1989 - 23
1992 - 22
1988 - 21
1985 - 17
2010 - 16
1981 - 16

Bottom 8
2000 - 5
1995 - 5
1999 - 5
1994 - 5
1987 - 5
2006 - 2
2001 - 2
2007 - 1 (Jake Peavy)

The current 2010 list: Felix Hernandez, Josh Johnson, Clay Buchholz, Adam Wainwright, Roy Halladay, Jaime Garcia, David Price, Roy Oswalt, Tim Hudson, Brett Myers, Clayton Kershaw, Mat Latos, R.A. Dickey, Matt Cain, Jon Lester, Johan Santana, Ubaldo Jimenez.

Some of these pitchers could be out with one bad start, especially the 7 between 2.90 and 3.00: Kershaw, Latos, Dickey, Cain, Lester, Santana, Jimenez.  Several pitchers could pitch their way into it it with a great start (between 3.00 and 3.10): Jared Weaver, Trevor Cahill, Cole Hamels.  There are no pitchers that are just under 150 IP and close to a 3.00 ERA.  With only 5 days left in the season, there shouldn't be too much change in the number of pitchers.
