Superstars of FIP: Cubs at Phillies Game Thread, June 11, 2011

New, 294 comments

Today's game will feature a matchup of a couple of pitchers who are badly underperforming their peripheral stats this season.

Both Cliff Lee (2.60 FIP) and Matt Garza (2.21 FIP) have done an excellent job on the things within their control; however, their results, for whatever reason, have been less than stellar: Lee's ERA is 3.62; Garza's is 4.07.

Now that I've said that, watch this game turn into a slugfest with like zero strikeouts and a trillion walks.

Discuss the game below.
