For what it is worth, Sickels had a "Not a Rookie" feature on Eveland a couple of weeks back. The conclusion was fairly positive: Eveland has always had the "stuff" to be an effective starter in the majors, but has not been comfortable from a mental perspective in Milwaukee in Arizona. Sickles believes that his head is in the right place now, which is why he is achieving success and why he is sustaining it. Interesting thesis.

Let's hope so - I own him and everytime I play him I get really nervous that my league-leading ERA might blow up. So far, so good.

Wow what a great start. He's a must start in even shallow leagues at home.

Yes. Although I've only been starting him at home (same with Jonathan Sanchez). He's been dominant at the Coliseum.

Eveland will be like any other young SP that performs in the ~4.00 ERA range: there will be ups and downs with some ugly patches. I still think that his end of year statline in terms of ratios and K rate will look quite similar to his current statline for people that sit tight with him, but it is not really reasonable to expect him not to encounter some periodic rough patches.

Looking ahead, the other thing I wonder about is the IP load. Inevitably the A's will fall out of contention (they just do not have the dollars to make a big trade and I think that Beane will hold tight on what stands to be an even better team next year). When this happens, will they shut Eveland down considering he did not even pitch 40 innings last year? Right now the guy is on pace for 200 IP and he has never come close to that before. In otherwords, I do not count on him too heavily down the stretch.
