The One that got away



Brett Anderson

Since July 1, 2009, Anderson ranks 7th in MLB in FIP. And among the top 25 guys in FIP since then, only Jaime Garcia has a better GB/FB and GB%

Obviously presentation of his ranking on this list does not mean I or anyone else thinks he's been better than Halladay or King Felix, who both have pitched 75% more innings during that span. And results DO count.  However this is a pretty good indication of just how special Anderson is
