Here's Vazquez and Shields, their last 3 seasons combined before they were traded. Each player started 99 games so these are their average numbers per season... Guess which is which:

PLAYER A - 227 IP, 102 ERA+, 216 H, 105 R, 95 ER, 58 BB, 212 K, 1.210 WHIP, 1.1 HR/9 IP, 2.3 BB/9 IP, 8.4 K/9 IP, 3.65 K/BB - 6.4 total WAR
PLAYER B - 215 IP, 108 ERA+, 205 H, 106 R, 99 ER, 54 BB, 194 K, 1.209 WHIP, 1.3 HR/9 IP, 2.3 BB/9 IP, 8.1 K/9 IP, 3.58 K/BB - 10.7 total WAR
