...I can't believe I'm actually considering this....)

Great ERA, K's, WHIP - just hasn't gotten the decisions in the games. Has he finally got the Yankee monkey off his back?

He can be a head case, to be sure. Anyone seen him pitch this year? I haven't had the chance.

He was a good pick up a week ago for his starts against KC and Tampa Bay.

His next three starts after today are against Baltimore, Texas and Anaheim so unless I was desperate I wouldn't be giving him the pill in those match-ups.

He got decent stuff. I hated him last year but his ERA seems better this year.

I still wouldn't touch him. Six weeks of good numbers is nowhere near enough to make me forgot his nightmare numbers of the last couple of years. His control will go on him anytime and he'll be very hittable once again.

He's actually got really good "stuff".

It's his control that's the problem.

I picked him up off waivers at the begining of the year because my pitching needed a good K guy, I think he'll do well against good offensive teams, he has the pitches to confuses hitters, and if hes on hell have a very very nice pitching line

I've seen him pitch a few games recently, and his stuff looks downright nasty. The ball seems to cross the plate from so many funky angles when he is on he looks almost unhittable.

When he isn't on, it gets pretty messy. I would definitely give him a shot if you are looking for SP. I don't have much room on my staff other wise he would have stayed. I got a few good games out of him though.

Sox are rolling to boot, so he could get some W's even when he isn't overpowering. That's a nice situation to be in.
