His name is mentioned here all the time. In my personal opinion, he won't have a 2.27 ERA, but he'll definitely have a breakout year worthy of a 2nd tier starting position.

He gets too much hype here at the Cafe IMO. Relying on him for anything above a #4 starter would scare me.

He's everywhere.... and its starting to get annoying ;)

He's a sleeper, and like with any other sleeper, there are no guarantees.

at the price he's available at, I don't really mind if he sucks as I will just chuck him but, if he DOES pan out, he'll have been a great pickup.

I got him in the middling rounds of a couple of drafts...one team paired w/ Santana and CZam and w/ Harden and O Perez ( 8-o I know...) on another team. I am a bit apprehensive about team two but I got all those guys off the board later than I had them ranked. Well, not Santana... :-)

see the problem is he was a good sleeper pick, but everyone is hyping him to death, and it's to the point now where you have to take him at a round where he may pay off, but it's not really worth the risk any longer.

I took him in the late 10th round of a 12 teamer. It was early, but I'm putting my faith in him. He's my 4th starter (stole Penny late in the draft).
