I'm not giving him a huge leash, but I figure this is the time of the year to pick up a bunch of pitching could-be's. And the ones that show themselves as not-be's, I'll drop.
But I'm putting more emphasis on him inducing more GB's than his ERA over his innings thus far. There's at least a methodological reason why he's been doing so well so far, and may be more than simply small sample size.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
