Every time one of the BABIP leaders pitches a good game like Chicago White Sox righty Gavin Floyd did yesterday, fantasy players forget about BABIP as a indicator of future performance. How could it be right if it has been so worng so far? Not to pick on Floyd whose 20/1 K/BB over his past three starts shouldn't be forgotten, but BABIP is independent of even those great peripherals. Pitch and your BABIP goes to .300.
Conversely, every time a BABIP laggard pitches a ppor game, fantasy players conclude their isn't good things in that hurlers future as their high BABIP would indicate. I mena, come on, Florida Marlins' starter Andrew Miller has been on this list for months. Eventually, you conclude he stinks, right?
BABIP Leaders. Sell High?:
BABIP Laggards. Buy low?:
