Looks like your mind was made up before you made the thread? So why make the tread?
Cain is good, but he was still LUCKY last year. He had a 27% hit rate %. 30% is normal. He had a 80% strand rate. 75% is normal. So his xERA was 4.04. He might be around 3.75 this year.
The real concern is his K/9 has dropped from 8.5 to 7.1.
