I agree, Whip hurts Logan's case.
I decided before I looked up the numbers, that I was going to use WHIP.
I didn't want to change that decision to strengthen my case.
I was actually surprised that WAR was so friendly to Logan. (I used baseball reference).
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
