Then again, Cliff Lee's record is 6-9. Ew, he's definitely not a good pitcher. Nope. Not at all. He's going to lose almost 20 games for cripes sake! The Indians would be lucky to get a C-level prospect for him.*

Before I'm swamped with Indians fans telling me how stupid I am, this is sarcasm. You can't use FIP/xFIP/tRA/tRA* then turn around and base predictive value on W-L records. It's like dating an Orangutan then deciding you like people better. Once you cross that line, you aren't coming back.
