So by WAR, that basically makes him a middle #4, if you assume 16 teams with 5 starters..
By ERA, he's at the top end of the #5's.
By FIP, he's the last #4 in the league.
I would agree on that based on his performance last year. I still think there's room for improvement.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
