@gondee: Hudson better than Hanson? Really?

 

Hudson has by far been the Braves best pitcher this year

Gondee just wrote that in the Braves vs Marlins preview:

No way Hudson has been the best pitcher. Hudson has been the luckiest. Let's see some stats between Hudson and Tommy Hanson:

 

Hudson's FIP, xFIP and tRA: 4.36, 4.45, 4.58.

Hanson's FIP, xFIP and tRA: 3.24, 3.67, 2.97 

Hudson's pitching runs above average according to statcorner.com: 0.3

Hanson's pitching runs above average according to statcorner.com: 10.0

 

According to Fangraphs:

Hudson's Runs above replacement (RAR) and WAR: 6.5, 0.7

Hanson's Runs above replacement (RAR) and WAR: 11.7, 1.3

 

Hudson's K/BB: 1.13

Hanson's K/BB: 3.87

 

And here are the key statistics: 

Hudson's BABIP and LOB%: .213, 86.5%.

Hanson's BABIP and LOB%: .344, 71.4%

 


Hudson ERA is not sustainable. He is stranding too many runners, having an absurdly low BABIP and if he doesn't start K ing more batters and walking less he is due for a HUGE regression.

Hanson had one bad luck start against Arizona in which every blooper falled for a hit and an horrible call from the official scorer declaring a hit the fly Nate Mclouth lost in the lights. And just one bad start against Cincinatti. Those 2 starts make Hanson's ERA look bad; but Hanson is BY FAR, the Braves best pitcher and one of the 30 best starters in the majors.
