Moose Leads

Jose Contreras had his first bad outing in about a year, giving up six runs. As a result, his ERA raised nearly 3/4 of a run per 9 to 2.53. What does this mean?

It means that Mike Mussina officially has the lowest ERA in the American League at 2.42. Only Brandon Webb's 2.01 is better league-wide.

Also pitching well are Barry Zito and Mark Buerhle. Interestingly, all four of the top AL pitchers are in their contract years.
