We could also point out his season long walk numbers, but that would ignore the fact that in his last 5 stats (27.1 innings) he's walked 5 guys while striking out 38.
Is that an accurate picture of who he is going forward? Who knows? But his most recent performances (especially for a 20 year old who is showing development in leaps and bounds) are likely more accurate than what he was doing April-June.
And why you would us RA/9 as a telling stat when it ignores the quality of and situational defense behind him is odd especially for a guy whose FIP and xFIP were better than his ERA this year. But, you do you. Not seeking to change your opinion in any way. Just stating my own.
That is a tough pill to swallow and a pretty irrational premise. I do not get this idea that opting for less info about the same season is more telling than the favorite parts. His season is actually pretty fun if you're less caught up in labeling him a TOR guy for doing well at the A ball levels for a handful starts too, he didn't do anything to hurt himself as a ML prospect. Is it great that the best came at the end? Yep, for both him and the Cubs. Do I think 27.1 IP establishes that he secretly had amazing control the whole time? Nope. Do I think he had bad control in the first place? Don't really care until AA about walk rates unless they're heavily one way or another for alot more than 27.1 innings, and even then look at what else is going on.
The quality and situational defense in...A ball? After taking 3 years to get there? From a supposed future TOR starter? Not for me
It's okay. You don't have to get it. Not that you're trying to when you misrepresent what I wrote and respond to words I didn't write.
But like I said, you do you. It's all good with me that we view this differently.
