not great? 1.83 ERA and .990 WHIP in 2008. 34.1 IP 33 Ks and 16 BBs
ERA is a joke. His FIP in 08 was 3.45, and xFIP was 4.21. That tells a lot about how much luck he had that year. That was his only year under 5 on BB/9 (4.19) and his BABIP was a ridiculous and unsustainable .200 which explains the very low WHIP and why he hasn't come close to that any other year.
His WHIP every other year has been 1.5, 1.98, 1.4, 1.62, 1.51. One fluke year where somehow every ball hit against him was caught, doesn't change the fact that he luckboxed it and generally sucks.
