Jason Marquis, Expectations, and Reality

pic1Should you be interested, I recently wrote a piece over in the Community Research section of Fangraphs breaking down the extreme difference between Jason Marquis’ very solid ERA and his all-time awful FIP. Not only is Marquis over-performing, he’s over-performing at an unprecedented level.

Check out the entire thing over at Fangraphs.
