Phillies Pitchers and xFIP

Just for fun, I visited FanGraphs and looked at our current pitching staffs xFIPs for the 2010 season as well as for years 2009 and 2008, and their entire careers.

Some of the sample sizes are a bit small to make any conclusions (and this data is generally pretty cursory), but there is some interesting information that pops out of the numbers as well.  I will let you make your own conclusions after the jump.

(For reasons of sample size, I did not include Herndon and Bastardo.)
