Anyhow, I think Bailey should be in the rotation.
I used ERA+ because its more of a baseline comparison tool. Its not the best but it sure isn't the worst.
When you start to say Player X's peripherals say they should be better your getting into a dangerous game. In Bailey's case people have been claiming that he has arrived or next year is his year for a number of years now. I have a feeling your going to hear the same thing after this season and maybe even after the next.
