That's my concern, though. He's far outperformed the FIP three years in a row. Being a knuckleballer, perhaps that's less an issue, but I just wonder if, at his age, he'll replicate the strikeout rate and continue to perform to this level. He's never had above-average strikeout rates in his career until this season. I truly doubt at age 38 it will continue.
