ERA in the high 3's high WHIP and tons of K's, until Kazmir started to put things together around the allstar break last year and became a fantasy ace. I think Billingsley if not this year than next year is going to turn the corner and get onto the top tier of pitchers.

The Kazmir/Billingsley comparison is a very good one, IMO. The talent is obviously there, it will just take him a bit to put the pieces together. His fantasy value may be a bit limited in redraft leagues, but he still has value. And in a keeper league, obviously, he's an important player.

He had a 1.89 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in May with 31 K in 38 IP, while he had a 5+ ERA in both April and 2 games in June. He's young, he's streaky, but it's obvious that the talent is there. If he started the year on a hot streak instead of a cold streak then casual fantasy baseball managers would be more forgiving of him.

ofanrex: go on
