Having an ERA different from your FIP is not like having performance different than a projection. FIP, much like wOBA and batting average, is just a better measurement of a pitcher's performance than ERA is. And his FIP/xFIP turned out to be much more predictive in the long run, as Chatwood did not sustain those low ERAs in the long run. His ERA went on to look much more like his FIP/xFIP.
    I already know all of this. But thank you.

    I din't think my point would be so misunderstood.

    I would rather have a 3.5 ERA and a 4.50 FIP, than the other way around. It helps the team more. And I understand that he didn't pitch as well as his outcome. No back to basics needed. But again, thank you.

    Some out-of-option players that may hit the waiver wire ...

    Cardinals will keep Ravelo and he will go on to win the mvp award.

    Yeah, I call ********. You used the arguments that he "outpitched his FIP" and that "results matter." That phrasing is clearly representing a stance that it's okay his FIP was bad, because his ERA indicates his "actual performance" was good. As in, "he pitched better than his FIP represented." When the truth is the opposite, that is, he pitched worse than his ERA represented. He was lucky for half a season. So what? Would you sign a guy with a 3.5 ERA/4.5 FIP or a 4.5 ERA/3.5 FIP? What point are you trying to make here? Clearly, if we are in agreement that FIP/xFIP are a better indicator of future/true performance, it's player B.

    But we were talking about him on the Rockies in 2016. Would you rather sign someone who had a 3.5 ERA but a 4.5 xFIP? Or a 4.5 ERA who had a 3.5 xFIP?

    Because I know who I'd rather have going forward.

    Yup. Jazz C Rudy Gobert has tested positive for Coronavirus. NBA games will be suspended after tonight’s games.

    The NHL will also be releasing a statement tonight following the NBA news, and since most teams share a stadium with NBA teams, I wouldn’t be surprised if they suspend the league as well

    It’s crazy, and further pushes the narrative IMO that MLB will probably suspend the start of the league too.

    The stock market is going to keep tanking.
