Not rWAR! That respected statistic! ERA+? Dammit were screwed then. Secretly he DOES suck.
I hope you realize that trying to sell short a top 30 FIP, top 15 xFIP, top 30 fWAR, top 5 K rate, top 2 fastball velocity, top 30 basic ERA can only work on extraordinarily simple minds who maybe havent bothered to notice that there are 30 teams who have to field 5 starting pitchers. Barely above average doesnt force their way into the top 30 of so many relevant and predictive numbers.
Ignoring that Lance Lynn has absolutely nothing to do with anything - he could probably bring back something nice as well, Im sure - Shark was better. I love it - so much more fitting for your agenda than *he was better than Lance Lynn by a solid amount but Lynn has control years and is younger therefore value.*
Lol barely league average...Sorry, I cant do this. Im having way too many bad experiences arguing with you as you throw out some absolutely unbelievable/ridiculous spin jobs.
