You are not appreciating Felix enough.

Felix leads all (pitchers) in baseball in fWAR, with 3.2. Kluber is second with 2.8.

Felix is tied for second most wins*, with 8. Buehrle leads with 10.

Felix is tied for the most innings pitched, with 91.0.

Felix's K/9 is 9.00, higher than his career rate of 8.43, second only to last year's 9.51, good for 17th**.

Felix's BB/9 is a career low of 1.58, good for 11th**.

His GB% is at a four year high, at 52.6%, good for 20th**.

His ERA/FIP/xFIP triple slash is 2.57/2.13/2.59, good for 14th/1st/3rd**. His FIP and xFIP are career best marks. You could argue that his ERA is inflated, given he's currently stranding 5.4% less runners than his career rate.

He's doing all this with a .301 BABIP, right in line with his career .300 mark.

ZIPs have him projected the rest of the way for a 7.1 WAR season. Steamer is at 6.0.

Felix is ours, and you can't have him.

And he is fucking awesome. Stop whatever you're doing and appreciate him. Right now.

*Pitcher wins are only not stupid when discussing how awesome Felix is.

**Starters, all baseball.
