I'm a big fan of SIERA (Skill Interactive ERA), as a metric that isolates luck from underlying skill.  I use it as an indicator for whether I expect performance to repeat for any given pitcher, and check more into the ones who surprised me (read: not a draft ranking).  It's not perfect, and next year I may have a new favorite metric that incorporates defense historical and projected, etc., but this is what I've got for now.  Sharing here.

I can't figure out how to paste a table from Excel here or I'd include a greater set of data for each pitcher; just SIERA below.  Note that only qualified starters are shown below, so pitchers like Jose Fernandez (2.20 SIERA) with insufficient IP are not included.
