It CAN be pretty flawed in a given season. But over a career, it generally balances out. Nolan Ryan, considered a hard luck pitcher, balanced out in 807 games, to only -9 wins less then deserved. Imo, saves and blown saves are junk stats, which are highly dependent on too many factors, a pitcher has no control over.
DK, good to see you. Nice piece. Santana has been unlucky by pen. But, his Era has been way lucky, and he has gotton over 5 runs per 9. His declining K/9 has hurt him as well. His expected wins, versus actual wins, is only -1.

Wow, I was really drunk when I posted this.
Still, Johan FTW.

Of course Lincecum probably deserves the Cy, but the Mets homer in me is still disappointed.
