1. I never said that.

2. Wins are part of the equation of evaluating any pitcher. Good pitchers can still win without their best stuff. They are not the only measurement but wins mean something.

3. His XFIP divided by his WAR is only so/so.

The point is that for $45 million, the team may not be all that much better than if we spent half that amount on another pitcher or two.
