FIP goes from 4.13 to 4.04, extra BABIP means a few extra base runners, which could mean some extra earned runs depending on how many homers he gives up. Trying to explain the bump from 3.56 to 4.34, when everything else has stayed constant.

I don't have a theory about Miley's home-road splits the last two years. In his rookie season, he was a killer against lefties but vulnerable against righties. He was also much better at home than on the road. And he pounded the strike zone.

In the two seasons since he's thrown more sliders, fewer curves, and the lefty-righty splits have balanced but the home-road splits have exploded. He's also walked a lot more guys. I can't explain the home road split, but as I said originally, the changes don't seem to be working.

How much more of an uptick in BABIP is there, really? Twenty-six points doesn't seem like much, and BABIP always goes up (or tends to go up) when you get more outs via strikeout. My guess is, he had pretty much the same luck, good or bad, in balls that were put in play.

I also think you might address the extreme home/away splits the last two seasons that Megary mentions.

Hey, you asked for feedback!

I'm pasting in the first drafts of a few player comments from The 2015 Fantasy Baseball Guide. Comments appreciated:

The ERA obscures the fact that he was pretty consistent the last two years. A boost in strikeouts last year over 2013 came with a similar boost in walks, and he gave up the same number of homers and grounders. The other variation was BABIP, which ticked up last year, and explains some of the ERA jump. Unfortunately, he's been consistent allowing too many baserunners, which has allowed runs despite all the grounders he throws. This is a much different profile than that of the control pitcher who almost won the Rookie of the Year award in 2012. He's surely still in there, and finding him may lead the way to a Miley resurgence.

Year - Home ERA - Away ERA

2012 - 2.99 - 3.68

2013 - 4.15 - 3.09

2014 - 5.61 - 3.17


I have no idea what to make of that

I do like the uptick in K's and maybe the BABIP will correct itself so that a possible bargain might be had next season.  But he has to figure out how to pitch at home.
