i am in no way being critical or sarcastic. This is an honest, legitimate inquiry about Mr. Happ.
first off: let me say i know nothing about fangraphs, WAR, xFIP, or any moneyball stat so please inform me.
nevertheless i looked on fangraphs and i didnt really see much of a difference between his stats. now there are of course was some outrageous changes on some such as WPA and RE24, but i have no clue what that means.
i want Happ to turn it around. i want him to be the feel good story of next year and the rest of his career. i want Happ to be legit.
do you think J.A. is getting tore up because of the loosing record or because he has lost his stuff?
im voting the former, but when it takes 35 pitches to get out of the first i have to ask.
Lets Go Stros!
