Tyler Clippard on Beating BABIP and the Limits of FIP

Tyler Clippard has always been a smart pitcher. That’s evident from his erudition as well as his results.

Washington Nationals: should they trade Tyler Clippard?

It is clear that the Washington Nationals have a surplus of strong arms at the back end of their bullpen.
