A guy who doesn't get a lot of respect is D. Willis. He's looked good this spring and is still very young. I think he'll rebound to an ERA in the mid-3's, 15 wins, and 150-160 Ks (in a pitcher's park and good offense behind him).
He doesn't have a good k rate (around 5/9) and gives up the long ball too frequently for my tastes (1.2/9). I had him at about 10-7, 4.1 ERA, 1.3 WHIP, 100Ks this year.
I thought it was notable that he went 7-2 with a 3.15 era after the All-Star break and had a 1.48 era over the last six starts. It's also a pitchers park and he only signed a one-year deal so its his contract year again. Put all those together and it could equal another good year.
Absolutely. I've been waiting for the moment he gets a rotation spot to pounce. I think he's about the best guy available who doesn't have a rotation spot now, but could get one later in the season. Foppert is the real deal and in a pitcher's park on a good team.
