There are 7 starting pitchers that have a higher ERA than Shoemaker.

 

Latos

Hellickson

Harrison

Kendrick

Garza

Iglesias

Greene

 

And just slipping under Shoemaker by .01 is Walker for Seattle.

 

That is half the league today that doesn't have a option better than our 5th guy in the rotation and the Angels actually have options to replace the old Shoe with a better arm.

 

We are in a good place.

Would be interesting to see who starts a playoff series. Has to be G Rich. But would Mike Scioscia ever dare to start all star Santiago in front of his nibbling veterans in Weaver and Wilson? Pride and ego are going to get in the way of our success this year.

 

If you start Santiago you had better have a well rested and hot bullpen, he's not exactly pitch efficient.

There are in fact 7 starting pitchers in the AL with worse ERA's than Shoemaker, but you listed a bunch of NL guys and pitchers who have thrown less than 30 IP. One of them has thrown 4 innings. I'm honestly going insane trying to figure out how you came up with the list you did.

After researching 2014 vs 2015, it is true that Santiago has averaged around 17 pitches/inning in 2015 vs. 18 pitches/inning in 2014. 

Not really much of an improvement, but he is averaging just over 6 innings per start, up from only around 5 innings per start in 2014.

Gameday on MLB list starting pitchers and their ERAs.

Angels are tied for second in the AL in team ERA with Kansas City, right behind Oakland.

yet Oakland is a half-game out of the American League cellar ( at present a tie between Seattle and Boston ) . As much as people like to claim that pitching wins championships, it appears you have to have at least some offense to get into the postseason in the first place.

Or in Oakland's case defense, since they are dead last in that area.

They've scored the 5th most runs in the AL.

So in other words Oakland is giving up a ton of unearned runs?
