He has a 3.39 era era in this seasons first half. Striking out 80 in 15 games. He has a 1.40 era in 4 starts (with one at COL).
Will this guy continue to mature into a cy young caliber pitcher? Has a great K/BB ratio. The only progelm I see with him is his WHIP. He gives up too many hits.
Yea this guy is legit. This certainly isn't a product of luck. In fact, he might get even better, his LOB% is 77%, league average is 70% and last year Haren's was 72%.
His k/bb is 3.68 (fantastic) and his k/9 is 6.7. (solid)
Oh, and by the way, his whip is 1.14 so I don't know what you were talking about.
edit- that's why you don't post when you're overtired, obviously we should expect his era to go up
a bit, since he is getting lucky with his LOB%, not down.
