Care to explain how my stats are misleading? If you don't like ERA, go with WAR (1st), FIP (3rd) or xFIP (1st). Or tell me which of our top 6 RPs are inappropriate for their role.
Those stats are aggregators or averages. They do not take into account the standard deviation/variance/consistency.
I already did - A Miller being used for multiple innings.
Explain how standard deviation/variance/consitency is a reason to acquire someone to replace Tazawa/
IRT Miller, he is the best multi-inning RP in BB.
His ERA this year in appearances > 1.0 IPs is 1.59, with a 9/0 K/W in 5.2 IPs.
His ERA in 2013 in appearances > 1.0 IPs was 0.79, with a 17/3 K/W in 11.1 IPs.
His ERA in 2012 in appearances > 1.0 IPs was 0.79, with a 12/2 K/W in 11.1 IPs.
So Miller's ERA since 2012 for more than one IP is 0.95 with a 38/5 K/W.
So, without checking, there is probably little doubt he is one of the best in history, and NOT, AS YOU SAY, someone that can't go more than one inning.
But that is not the reason I posted all that, though it was enjoyable and interesting.
The reason I posted it is because you are egrgiously overreacting to one appearance. He gave up a run against MN, so you extrapolated an entire career from that, without bothering to check his stats. That doesn't work in the real world.
