What's the deal with him this year? I've seen a number of people saying he's done. Offers I received for him were not the offers I'd expect for an ace of NY.
If I remember correctly, last year he was ranked in the top 3 of SP going in to the year and the only concern was how he'd handle NY. He seemed to handle it fine. His ERA fell quite a bit, but it wasn't terrible. He still K'ed 200 hitters and had a good ratio.
I still think he's a potential top starter. He'll keep racking up the wins with that lineup.
Going in to his last start I was still very confident in him. He had an ERA of about 1.70 and a WHIP under 2 in his starts that weren't against Toronto, a team he struggled with last year too. But then he goes into TB and struggles again, and I've kinda gotten worried.
What are your guys' thoughts on him? I still see him as a very solid starter, but others seem to think differently.
