Philip Humber has been our best pitcher by far, and deserves to be in the top 10 in Cy Young voting. One thing he doesn't get is the credit from most people.
Phil Humber has a 7-3 record this year with an ERA of 2.90. The one thing he doesn't get: respect. Exhibit A:
A comment on an all-star prediction, Humber was ESPNs last-named pitcher for the team: Where's Lester? he has been WAY more deserving than Humber!
Listen, buddy, Humber has been the most consistant pitcher i've seen in a while. He goes seven innings every start and walks only a couple guys a start. I've never expected any more than two ER a start and he almost never gives up more than that.
Exhibit B: I received a txt from my uncle that said that a sports blogger named his 2011 mid-season top fifty pitchers- Humber wasn't in it. Ugh. Why, Phil, Why???? Why did you have to suck with the Twins to make everybody forget you?
