BLOG: Arrieta Exhibit A–Dumb Stat

Congratulations, Jake Arrieta, and thank you! Thank you for being credited with nine victories – a number that has baseball analysts talking about your victory total and asking the all-important question: What do you make of a guy with a 4.50 ERA who has as many victories as any of the top pitchers in the game? Answer: WINS for pitchers is one of the dumbest stats in baseball and it’s born out in the Arrieta case.
