I watched the 6th inning last night and his control looked a bit off. It could've been that he was over 100 pitches, but I looked at his stat line for the game and it wasn't that good. So which Patterson can I expect? The one from early in the season or the one from last night?

Double digit wins and a 3.50 ERA is not an unreasonble assumption. But he is not going to pitch like his first 4 starts all season, that's for sure.

He had a pretty good game last night...not great, but not bad. Cliff Floyd had some really tough ABs against him and seemed to take a lot out of him. I wouldn't read too much in to the 6th inning, he ended it with a strikeout, and wanted to continue pitching in to the 7th. Don't forget, the 6th inning is where he had to face the heart of the lineup.

not quite as sharp as ihs first 4 games, but really, take away that dumb error he made in the 1st or second inning where he let the guy run home, and beltran did a bit of damage and a red hot cliff floyd.....

I was able to watch patterson for the 1st time last night and while he didn't pitch all that badly, I worry that it doesn't look like has a real "out" pitch. Seems like the Mets were battling him all night and he just couldn't punch the batters out.

His curve is his out pitch. The only problem is that New York's two best hitters (Beltran and Floyd) are both left handers, and the right handed curve doesn't work nearly as well vs lefties.

He's better than he showed last night, New York is just a tough matchup for him with two great lefties.

As a Patterson owner last night was the first time I got to watch him pitch as well.

He looked pretty decent. Kept his team in the game. Any SP that can go six innings and give up three runs has a place on most fantasy squads.

There are a lot of good lefties in MLB. Several teams have at least 2 (sometimes more) solid left-handed hitters. He will need to find a way to pitch to them or else he's in trouble.

Floyd is the hottest left handed hitter in the league right now...he won't have to face him every time out.

Also, left handers are hitting .197 against him this year...and I'm pretty sure that includes last night. He doesn't have a problem getting most of them out, just the extremely tough ones (like Floyd and Beltran). They're not exactly easy to get out though.
