k/9, bb/9, and instead of just looking at whip, I also look at h/9, to make sure that it isn't a lot of unluckiness leading to a higher whip.

I am confused. What do you gain by looking at h/9 instead of whip? Obviously, I know the definition of the two but I would like to know how it is more effective in filtering out the luck that is involved with whip? Thanks in advance.

BAA isn't helpful. You have to look at hit rate % to see if there was good or bad luck.

I prefer k/9, k/bb, hr/9.

K pitchers in general have the lowest eras, followed by GB pitchers, with FB pitchers last.
