I think the "lucky/unlucky" confuses you. This pitcher had an unlucky BABIP and a lucky HR/FB if you buy that these outcomes are to some extent random.

I am serious ... and now I can't tell if I'm confused ... wait ... that means that for sure I am confused ... isn't "balls that stayed in play" and "balls that didn't go out of play" two ways to say the same thing?

BABIP, by definition/name, is about "balls that stay in play" ...

HR/FB ... isn't that more a metric about "balls that don't stay in play" ... and less a metric about "balls that didn't go out of play"?

OK ... that seems like I'm less confused ... and hoping you made a typo ... worthy of a kid ...

I can't tell if you're serious but I was talking about his BABIP and HR/FB.

What's the difference between "balls that stayed in play" and "balls that didn't go out of play"?

I kid because I care :-)

Howard Lynch LynchMob

Was Hector very unlucky on balls that stayed in play and very lucky on balls that didn't go out of play?

Whatever. His FIP was 2.50 this year, his xFIP 4.10.

He only had three blown saves. The Phillies bullpen all told had 11 saves and 12 blown saves. Its ERA was -- are you ready? -- 7.06.

He's back in, maybe.

From the Monkey:

Philadelphia Phillies – With Brandon Workman seemingly available, the Phillies turned to Hector Neris to close out Tuesday’s 4-1 win over the Mets. Manager Joe Girardi said that he might switch things up in the late innings, and it looks like he’s staying true to his word. We’ll slap a committee tag on this bullpen for now, but don’t be surprised if Neris wins his job back with another strong outing.

Hierarchy remains: *Workman | Neris | Phelps.
* = closer-by-committee

He's out, for now.
