The numbers you say matter, do lie. You have to look deeper.
Wins are really team dependent. You can't chase wins, because run support, defense, bullpen, play such a huge role.
ERA can be misleading.
Ever hear of babip? strand rate? hr/fb ratio?
The stats that mater are K/9, K/BB.
You won't find person who thinks Jurrjens is better then Gio.
k/9 is one of the most over ratting stats in sports. D.lowe prolly had a 2 k/9 ratio but year after year got you 15 wins not matter what and their are tons of pitchers like that. WINS are really the only stat that matters by the way!
Babip is one of the most misleading stats in baseball, it is very hard to maintain year after year. strand rate reflects on your ERA
but im sure these 2 will match up durring the year and really get to prove who the better is.
