Last season righthanders Juan Guzman and Pat Hentgen ranked one-two in the American League in ERA. Since 1969 only one other pair of teammates has done that—Ron Guidry and Tommy John of the '79 Yankees. Thirty-three teams have had their league's two ERA leaders, but only three of those clubs had a losing record: the '33 Indians (Monte Pearson and Mel Harder), the '64 Dodgers (Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale) and the '96 Blue Jays.
