Just an embarrassing article, really too many issues to discuss, imo.
I am big on sabermetrics.

Here is where he ranks in the National League:
Outside of ERA, he is among the best pitchers in the league in nearly every other category.
Would I put him on there roster? I honestly don't know. But he should be in the discussion.
