Harang has the 29th best ERA in the major leagues this year among starters.
With 30 teams and 150 starters out there, an average #3 pitcher would fall about 75th on the list. So, if you lined up all the pitchers in the league and ranked them, Harang would fall to the bottom of the #1 list. Now, Harang is not what we'd like a #1 starter to be, but there's not many true #1 starters out here. But when you look at it, Harang would be about the best #2 starter if the starters were evenly distributed throughout the league.
