Richmond/Frasor statistical anomaly

At the start of the season, if you were told by May 14th that Scott Richmond and Jason Frasor would have the same amount of wins, would you feel queasy? Obviously we all would have, assuming they likely had 0 wins combined with a bloated 8.75 ERA of some sorts.

Despite Richmond's awful outing against the Yankees (we can't be too quick to say he's finished already), both he and Frasor have posted 4 wins each! Who would ever have predicted that? Frasor has been an extremely reliable reliever in the bullpen, and Richmond was the American League rookie in the Month of April.

Even if the league has caught up to Richmond, and his first month of the year was a total mirage, we got one good month more than expected from the Canadian, right?
