A message to pitchers from the internet community: Pitch to your FIP!


W/L records don't matter. ERA doesn't matter. What matters is what you can control, namely strikeouts, walks and homeruns! With a man on first base, I say pitch from the windup. It would lead to a stolen base, perhaps a run scored, and perhaps even a loss of the game. But rest assured that we do not evaluate pitchers by their W/L record. Look at Jeff Samardzija! Look at Cliff Lee (143-90 lifetime record aside!)!

We want FIP'ers, not winners. You see, winners cannot be statistically identified (when subjected to the caprice of the masses) and therefore, they are irrelevant to the discussion. Please make yourself FIPortant to us!
