BABIP, Anyone?

Been a while since we checked in our BABIP leaders and trailers.  Minimum 75 IP.

Those benefitting from low BABIPs should see their WHIPs rise:

NAME BABIP K/BB ISO ERA WHIP
Scott Feldman 0.236 1.56 0.136 3.59 1.14
Dan Haren 0.240 7.42 0.121 2.14 0.84
Scott Richmond 0.246 2.37 0.211 3.69 1.20
Jarrod Washburn 0.247 2.60 0.116 2.71 1.06
Edwin Jackson 0.249 2.36 0.143 2.59 1.11
Chris Carpenter 0.255 4.75 0.098 2.26 0.91
Shairon Martis 0.256 0.87 0.178 5.25 1.42
Randy Wolf 0.257 2.71 0.169 3.45 1.13
Yovani Gallardo 0.259 2.16 0.149 3.09 1.25
Chris Young 0.260 1.25 0.189 5.21 1.45
Jeff Karstens 0.260 1.03 0.189 4.40 1.36
J.A. Happ 0.261 2.15 0.140 2.97 1.18
Mark Buehrle 0.262 2.92 0.164 3.28 1.10
Trevor Cahill 0.262 1.09 0.223 4.50 1.45
Matt Garza 0.263 2.32 0.134 3.68 1.20
Kevin Millwood 0.268 1.87 0.156 3.39 1.28
Jair Jurrjens 0.268 1.87 0.121 2.67 1.20
Clayton Kershaw 0.269 1.75 0.090 2.96 1.26
Jered Weaver 0.269 2.73 0.157 3.57 1.18

It's time to sell high on Feldman, who has a 4.80 xFIP.  Happ is another player to shop, especially given the possibility he lands in the AL East as part of a Roy Halladay trade.

Here are the buying opportunities, guys who should see their WHIPs come down:

NAME BABIP K/BB ISO ERA WHIP
Todd Wellemeyer 0.360 1.45 0.177 5.79 1.75
Kevin Slowey 0.355 5.00 0.194 4.86 1.41
Manny Parra 0.354 1.48 0.172 6.42 1.80
Ricky Nolasco 0.344 4.04 0.192 5.42 1.36
Aaron Harang 0.344 3.67 0.180 4.25 1.43
Jordan Zimmermann 0.343 3.17 0.157 4.63 1.36
Jason Hammel 0.342 2.80 0.156 4.28 1.45
Carl Pavano 0.339 3.68 0.177 5.48 1.40
Livan Hernandez 0.335 1.54 0.162 4.87 1.53
Jon Lester 0.335 3.56 0.130 3.79 1.29
Cole Hamels 0.335 4.57 0.195 4.66 1.33

Sorry to say, there's not much here.  Favorites of mine like Zimmermann and Slowey are on the shelf.  Parra, Hammel, and Pavano are mildly interesting.  Check the price on Harang.
