I'll admit this is a somewhat silly example, but:
O. Villarreal - 4.3 innings per win, 4.99 ERA, 1.57 WHIP. Now, I can't imagine you're jumping all over this guy.
Do you honestly believe Wandy is going to keep his pace up? He plays for a team is, to date, very average. His WHIP and ERA numbers are average at best also. If anything, to me, I'd be selling Wandy because I don't think he could keep this pace up.
Your "stat" might be valuable if there were some sort of historical average. In other words, if the "average" pitcher earned a win every "x" innings. You could then buy or sell based on variances from that average. But to simply say, so-and-so has a high or low WEFF, so I'm going to sell or buy him... in a vacuum, that's meaningless.
