I can't imagine why anyone wants to trade this guy. I'll take my chances on a young starter who already has the superb changeup needed to be successful in the majors and only allowed 3 home runs through 75 innings. He's now gotten through 12 starts without getting rocked. I only have him on two of my four teams and I'll definitely go fishing for him if people are willing to sell.

Yeah, I don't get why people are still down on this guy and selling high. I actually bought a little high getting Beltran and Volquez for Webb and McLouth in a keeper. I think this guy is definitely the real deal. Everyone complains about the walks but I don't understand...3-4 walks a game is not that high for a strikeout pitcher and with that changeup he's going to be good for a long time.

Just you wait, I see him getting rocked sometime between his 13th game and retirement.
