Is it Cole Hamels good? Seriously, I need to know some more about him. Two nice outings in a row 21 K's in 2 games is looking pretty attractive. I'm this close to dropping Chuck James for him but I'll wait and see.
check out his highlight today, all his strike outs were on change ups. And it looks NASTY!
I still wouldn't say he can post a 9k/9ip ratio, but I'm fairly confident he can post a 7k/9, which is very good.
with only 1-2 BB a game as well
It will be interesting to see how he does. His change up is very nasty and if he can keep hitters off balance, then he should continue to be successful. I'm reserving him against top offensive teams but definitely like what he is doing so far. Throwing strikes = key.
