I disagree, because you're also going to have situations where a game is a blowout and the team lifts their pitcher earlier than they normally would because there is no reason to overwork them. That would mean that pitchers on teams that don't give as much run support would be rewarded over pitchers on teams with great offenses and get lifted after the 6th. Not only that, but some teams like Toronto are built around the goal of making a pitcher throw as many pitches as possible. Starters seldom can go more than 6 innings against this type of team.

Pitchers that go deep into games with good ERA and WHIP are already rewarded in 5x5, since they pitch more innings and have more affect on the ERA and WHIP of the team. There's no reason to give an even greater impact to that.
