Huston Street on (Imperfect) Stats

Huston Street isn’t an expert on analytics. Nor does he claim to be. But he’s by no means a neophyte. The veteran closer is more knowledgeable about advanced stats than the average player. He also has some strong opinions. A little over a year ago, Street shared his negative view of FIP in one of my Sunday Notes columns. This past spring, I approached him at the Angels’ spring...

Huston Street's return would bolster Angels bullpen that has been logging a lot of innings

2016 Angels Preview: Huston Street

Huston Street’s 2015 wasn’t bad, per se, but it was disappointing given the Angels inked Street to a three-year extension in early May. Even if saves are a silly stat, a team would happily take their closer reaching the 40-save plateau every year; it means he was a) healthy/good enough to pitch that many innings, and b) hey 40 banked wins is pretty good. But you can’t help...

It wasn’t his best season by fWAR, but it was in terms of ERA as he finished...
