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.
