A mismatch in the pitching department when we look at the raw numbers, the FIP to FIP favors Moehler at a 3.65 FIP to a 4.78 FIP for Harden. Whether or not that translates into a success is likely obscured by the limited sample size on which those FIPs are based on, especially for Moehler, but it's something to draw some hope from nonetheless.
