His problem is not location.... It is HOME RUNS!!!! Not terrible, but he gives up at least one home run per appearence. It would be nice for him to put a string of games without giving up the long ball.
He has been killed by the long ball this year, other than that he is a good starter on any 12 team league.
I am not so sure about a 10 teamer, it depends on how pitching heavy the categories are.
His WHIP will be fine and he will finish the year with very good numbers overall.

Exactly...don't try to forecast based on good start/bad start or good month/bad month patterns unless there's a very solid reason for those patterns (like an Aramis Ramirez situation).
As one of the other posters mentioned Bush is a solid play in the whip department...it's the era where he can hurt you. He'll put up very good k's and whip but the era and wins only come if he happens to keep the ball in the ballpark.
