Thread: Anyone else had dominant relievers have inexplicable horrible years?

    Anyone else had dominant relievers have inexplicable horrible years?

    Example one:

    Robert Frantz - won the FOTY award almost every season. ERA below 3 for his whole career, and below 2 for much of it. Then, in 2056, he balloons up to 4.97 ERA (2 run increase over career), and 1.59 WHIP. He had a career low, by far, in K/9 and a career high, by far, in BB/9. That can't be blamed on defense. He didn't decline, and in fact is still improving. His 4.97 ERA was actually greatly improved, as he had a strong 2nd half of the season to bring it down. He was at 10.22 in July, and over 7 still in August. He recovered to be not quite as dominant, but still very good the next season. What happened?

    Example 2:

    Dean Chow - Dominant 3/4 years prior to this year, with 2 seasons below 2 ERA. There was one mediocre year with 4.18 ERA, but nothing like this year (7.03 ERA, 1.76 WHIP). Also no decline, and the defense has actually improved. K/9 is normal, but his BB/9 has spiked to a career high, as has OAVG, OOBP, OSLG, OOPS, etc. What's going on?

    Happens all the time.

    I've always wondered if "down years" or "up years" are built into the game, where sometimes players will get hidden boosts or declines in ratings just for one season.
