Benson has kind of leveled off. Actually, he's kind of gotten really bad since his June 22 start against Florida, when he went eight and gave up just one run in a no-decision. Since then, he's 1-4 and his ERA has jumped from 4.06 to 4.72. He did have a nice start against Texas on July 14, but he got no run support and lost a complete game (4 H, 2 ER).

Redman is an All-Star! He's been quite sharp since May ended, honestly, going 6-1 and having his ERA plummet from 6.80 to 5.02. Redman's one loss in that stretch was to Boston his last time out, and he went eight innings and struck out nine without walking anybody in a 1-0 loss. Redman will be a moderately hot property on the trade market, I suppose.
