In the last game of the first half, the NL's ERA leaders face off against each other. While one of them probably doesn't deserve that title, I can't think of a better way to end an up and down first half.

Update>>Just noticed, D.J. Houlton has been called up, Hong-Chih Kuo has been sent down. I'll try to make a more detailed post later, but for now I'll just mention that Odalis Perez was allowed to have three bad starts out of six before he was kicked out of the rotation, Kuo only had two bad starts out of six.
