Back to torture the White Sox for 3 more years....

2012
---------
vs. the Whitesox: 4 GS, 29 2/3IP, 0.30 ERA, 19 K, 0.775 WHIP
vs. everyone else: 25 GS, 152 IP, 5.62 ERA
According to the article linked in OP, Guthrie had a 3.16 ERA over 14 starts after leaving the Rockies last year. Eight million a year is basically the going rate for a veteran #4 at best pitcher, which is probably what he has been over his career. Not just anybody can go out and pitch 200 innings at league average ERA.
