Cornbread Maxwell wrote:hold on now - the last two years he started off terribly, but then returned to form in the 2nd half. To say he is so far removed from a 3 ERA is untrue. He had 2nd half ERAs of 3.05 and 3.48 the last two years - the yr before that he had a 2.62 ERA for the entire season. To say he isnt a legit threat to pitch under 4 shows a pretty large bias or a lack of insight into his numbers.
Regardless of ERA - what about his WHIP - are you saying that a WHIP under 1.2 isnt fantastic? There were a total of 13 SPs last yr that had a better WHIP.
