Agreed. Picked up Hampton about 10 days ago and have been starting him and am not sorry. Fine, he'll hurt you in K's, but he has been absolutely stellar as far as ERA & WHIP go. There are plenty of other pitchers that are on many teams who have similar K's issues, and are significantly worse in ERA & WHIP. Biggest thing about him is how he has dramatically cut down on the walks.
