Regression Kings

Dave Cameron's latest post at FanGraphs names five pitchers very likely to experience regression in the second half.  These names should be very familiar to RotoAuthority readers.

At this point, it seems that the cat is out of the bag with BABIP (and to a lesser extent, home runs per flyball).  Too many fantasy leaguers know about this stuff.  I wouldn't say it's exactly mainstream, but most good competitive leagues have at least several members who follow it.  We need something new to stay ahead of the pack.  Any ideas?

Anyway, if you're looking for pitchers whose WHIPs will almost certainly rise, just check out the BABIP rankings.  That stat is at least somewhat buried at ESPN.com (plus it's called BIPA for some reason).  Also, your home run per flyball leaders.
