Update: Here are some stats for the guys the Sox traded away:

Player ERA+ tRA+ ERA tRA FIP xFIP
John Ely (Dodgers) 117 136 3.41 2.97 1.83 3.25
Clayton Richard (Padres) 136 109 2.73 4.19 3.07 4.08
Gio Gonzalez (A’s) 119 114 3.46 3.84 3.47 4.25

Definitions:

ERA+: “ERA measured against the league average, and adjusted for ballpark factors. An ERA+ over 100 is better than average, less than 100 is below average.”

“tRA+ is equal to [((lgTRA - tRA`) / lgTRA) + 1] * 100. This formula puts tRA+ on the same scale as wOBA+’

“tRA involves assigning run and out values to all events under a pitcher’s control and coming up with an expected number of runs allowed and outs generated in a defense and park neutral environment. tRA is on a R/9 scale.”

FIP: “Fielding Independent Pitching, a measure of all those things for which a pitcher is specifically responsible. The formula is (HR*13+(BB+HBP-IBB)*3-K*2)/IP, plus a league-specific factor (usually around 3.2) to round out the number to an equivalent ERA number. FIP helps you understand how well a pitcher pitched, regardless of how well his fielders fielded. FIP was invented by Tangotiger.”

xFIP: “Expected Fielding Independent Pitching. This is an experimental stat that adjusts FIP and “normalizes” the home run component. Research has shown that home runs allowed are pretty much a function of flyballs allowed and home park, so xFIP is based on the average number of home runs allowed per outfield fly. Theoretically, this should be a better predicter of a pitcher’s future ERA.”
