Cheesy Sabermetric Poetry, Part I If you're sad that Cliff Lee pitched so well, yet only had six wins, Welcome to the sabermetric side, where we throw those in the bin. We try to measure players by only things that they control, No run support cannot be helped, so pitcher wins is not the goal. Consider the Three True Outcomes stat, the lovely F-I-P, Strikeouts, walks, HBP and homers are what pitchers oversee. Balls in play are tricky, as so many other factors come into play, Was the regular defense out there or did Ty Wigginton start that day?

His strikeout rate's still healthy, his walk rate's off the charts, In 2013, he'll be fine, making more outstanding starts.

I thought it would be on a team like the 2012 Kansas City Royals, in other words.
