BASEBALL: Not So Smooth

Aaron Gleeman's Johan Santana Liberation Watch reads as follows:

Games/Starts: 14/1
ERA: 2.56
Innings: 31.2
Strikeouts: 35
Opponent AVG: .212

Is it rude of me to point out that this omits the inconvenient fact that Santana is walking 4.5 men per 9 innings?

I agree with Aaron's larger point - heck, I've got Santana on both of my rotisserie teams, myself - but he's not Randy Johnson, not yet at least.
