Alex has, so far, written 41,934 comments and this was the latest, on Blake Snell:

With a 3.24 ERA and 1.05 whip in the second half, Blake ends up with Statcast stats that are almost identical to the year before.

The big difference in the Statcast scan is HR/FB, which is a "results stat" (I think of Statcast stats as things that are measured by cameras and radar). The much lower HR/FB explains the substantially better FIP.

His actual ERA, of course, was substantially worse.

That explains why he only earns $9, even in 5x5.

He'll get big bucks again from us this year. He's Blake Snell.
