Pittsburgh left-hander Jeff Locke has been worth about 1.3 wins by WAR calculated with runs allowed (as opposed to FIP) — a figure that places him between the very effective Jake Peavy and also very effective Max Scherzer by that measure.

Locke comments on that, and other matters, in this edition of FanGraphs Audio, live on tape from the visitor’s clubhouse at Miller Park in Milwaukee, WI.
