I still think he'll be a great draft pick next season. He was definitely overhyped after the world series MVP, and then he disappointed.
This year, I was guilty of taking him way too early (5th round ahead of Peavy, Mulder, Smoltz, and Mussina), but I'm still happy with that pick. He's had a good, but still disappointing, season with 15 wins, 3.38 ERA and 166K so far.
I feel like a lot of people think he's having a bad season because of continuing blister problems. I wouldn't be surprised to see him fall in next year's drafts and I'd be thrilled to take a chance on him around where the 2nd tier SPs are getting picked up.
