I don't really see the value of BABIP in measuring performance. In predicting future performance, maybe. To me IP and ERA are the main way to judge a starting pitcher's results. Who cares if hitters are getting hits when they put the ball in play, if they're not crossing the plate? You can look at that and say, he's probably not going to sustain that in the future, but if you're looking back at a past season and judging the result it's irrelevant. I'll take the low ERA, 250 IP pitcher every time.
