It’s weird that we don’t adjust for quality of competition when we unquestionably, absolutely should.
Felix, Justin Verlander, Jered Weaver, and David Price.
If I had a vote and if I were voting right now, I’d cast a vote for Justin Verlander, and then I’d ask why I have a vote, and why I had to vote right now, something about this seems fishy.
It didn’t feel like it over the first couple months, but Felix has put himself in position to possibly win the greatest single-season award a pitcher can receive. Right now he leads the American League in innings. He’s tied for fourth in ERA, he’s number one in FIP, and if you put any stock into FanGraphs’ pitcher WAR, he’s number two. Baseball-Reference’s pitcher WAR ranks him tied for sixth.
I didn't know that. Does it adjust for handedness when measuring the toughness?
