By what measure? I'm not sure how you can rate 202 IP with a slightly better than league average ERA in the NL over what he did in 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2008, and really even 2009 and 2011. Just because his WHIP was a little lower from a lower BABIP? Because his K's jumped? Those can be used as arguments I suppose, but the overall results don't point to those being better seasons than many of his years in Chicago.
