Filthy. His change and slider are unhittable - if he could paint corners with those two pitches, then he would not give up hits. I can understand why hitters look lost against him - the pitch that the scoreboard calls a changeup has a six-inch break on it, and his slider is even better. Oh, and nobody was really catching up with his 94-96 mph heater either ...

Nice! Very envious, I am.

Ya, if any of you guys haven't seen him pitch it's a real treat. His changeup really does break as much as a lot of guys' curveballs. And the slider, which the word in spring training was that it "needed work", has been filthy at times as well.
I think he gives up a few more home runs down the road because of down-in-the-count fastballs - but I don't see any reason why he won't end up being a top 5 NL starter at the end of the year.
