Any stat that says Halladay pitched better than Lincecum yesterday is obviously flawed. Timmy was dealing.

In my H2H Keeper I (foolishly) built my team around pitching this year. Linc and Weaver are keeping me afloat right now. It would be nice to have a bat touch a ball from my 1-9, though. :-o

"Dealing" isn't a quantifiable stat.

Sure it is. That's what the point of these stats are...to measure the extent of their "dealing."

In my opinion, "dealing" would be directly defined (or at least some function of) swings-and-misses.

Filthy stuff is hard to quantify, but if you've got guys routinely looking like complete fools, rather than just nibbling corners and hitting the black, I think that's definitely got a lot more "dealing" value. :-b

I think it's naive to think elite SPs have no control over HR/FB%...therefore...an early FIP update in the NL. ;-)

1. Tim Lincecum 1.44
2. Roy Halladay 1.72
3. Ubaldo Jimenez 1.94
