My pitching has been somewhat weak thus far in the season, and I had just picked up Ogando off Waivers. He turned in another lights out performance last night, but then I wandered over to Fangraphs to find an interesting article regarding his numbers, and why they could be significantly inflated right now ( ... ferential/). I try not to overvalue advanced stats, but his do seem rather telling.

A friend said he would flip Garza for Ogando if I wanted to trade. Garza also happens to be in the article mentioned above, as one of the players that should see his numbers getting better.

What do you think? Should I stop getting caught up in advanced stats and enjoy the ride? Or should I jump ship now and hope I sold at the right time. My pitching could use more stability!
