I may be a little more optimistic than most, but I was encouraged when I heard he acknowledged he was lazy last offseason and made a mistake by not playing winter ball, and that he played winter ball this year. Sounded to me like he got a bit of an attitude after his breakout and thought it was all downhill from there. I'm hopeful that he'll toss 180 innings with at least 10 wins, 170 k's and an ERA around 3.5. However, I think the WHIP will be fairly high, say 1.4 or so as he'll probably walk quite a few.
