A good point, but look a little deeper and you'll notice:
August: 26.1 IP, 1-3, 6.92 ERA, 16 K
September: 37.1 IP, 3-1, 2.89 ERA, 33 K
Dontrelle had a really bad stretch in August but rebounded strong. Most pitchers have a rough month or so at some point in the season. For Willis, it happened to be August. I wouldn't say he's been "figured out".
