He faces Toronto tonight...which I'am guessing will not go well. A fly ball pitcher vs. a homerun team usually doesn't go well. But like Buck says...these things usually work themselves out.

And where do you think FIP and xFIP come from? Why dismiss certain stats if you don't even know what they represent?
