These pitchers have a chance to win at least 20 games and have ERAs under 3.00, a feat accomplished just 10 times since 1995 and no more than three times in one year. If all eight achieve both marks, they'll be the biggest class of sub-3.00-ERA, 20-game winners since the star-studded '74 group of Catfish Hunter, Ferguson Jenkins, Jim Kaat, Andy Messersmith, Phil Niekro, Gaylord Perry, Nolan Ryan and Luis Tiant. (Stats through Sunday.)—David Sabino
