I added the rest of his career, because I was surprised he hadn't earned $20 before. He did, in 2014, in 5x5. The sense was he had another step up in him, and apart from a few down years (which weren't awful unless you paid for improvement) he's been sort of consistent. For a pitcher, I mean. Odds against a repeat, but it's hard to imagine someone not going $13. And someone else stammering $14. After that, it's on you.

We used to think he was capable of a $20 season ...

And then last year we became convinced that he wasn't.

So he went out and posted one (at least in 4x4).

His xFIP was 5.02.  Not many are going to bid on him repeating, although he's likely to be one of the most protected players in NL leagues this year.
