Huge believer right here. Strangely, he's been significantly better on the road - including last night's start at Coors. His WHIP is low and shrinking this year and his BB/9 is down about 25% from his career #s. I haven't gotten a chance to see him pitch yet this season, but it looks like he's just finding the strike zone really well right now.
Hopefully he stays locked in because he has a tendency to lose the strike zone big time. I'm riding this until it ends though. He was free off the WW.
I was interested and picked him up, but I had bigger holes to fill so I dropped him with a little less than a glance backward. I like his numbers so far this year, but I don't see them lasting - he's the same pitcher that he has been over the years. His defense independant statistic (whichever you choose to use) is ugly and in line with his career stats.

i guess i am misunderstanding the meaning of "believer." i take that to mean someone thinks a certain player will maintain his current level of play for an extended period of time. go ahead and use tomko in the short-term, just keep him on a short lease. i got some great starts out of him in h2h playoffs in 2004.
