    But, if it goes to CC Sabathia, it’s not as huge a crime as if the award went to…say…A.J. Burnett…

      Are the RSAA numbers park adjusted? Hernandez pitches in a much lower run environment than Sabathia.

      RSAA is park adjusted.

      Advanced stat’s are fine but the one’s most of us look at tell the story too. From LoHud:

      The Mariners’ run support for Hernandez was 2.4 per game. Seattle scored two or fewer runs in 15 of his starts. He was 2-10 with a 2.84 ERA in those games. In his nine no decisions, Hernandez pitched to a 1.92 ERA. Let’s not forget he also led the league in innings and ERA and finished second in strikeouts.
