Brandon Maurer Vs. C.J. Wilson

Did you know that C.J. Wilson has the 9th highest walk rate among qualified starts since 2011? I bet you did. Among the top 10 he's the only one other than Gio Gonzalez who's been worth more than 6 WAR over that time. The takeaway is that C.J. Wilson can be pretty good despite below average command, perhaps even partially because of it in some odd, heretofore unexplained reason. Measuring human performance is hard.

Jesus Montero is not in the dog house. He is not allowed inside at all. He has to sleep outside in the rain.
