Trade him if you can, but it's doubtful you could get much from a knowledgeable owner.

Yup, in most cases he'll just be a guy you ride while he's hot.

Gotta be a sell high, even with the excellent walk rate. His FIP is almost two full points higher than his ERA. His BABIP is bound to come up.

ZiPS doesn't paint a flattering picture.

If you can get anything of value for him, do so.

Agreed, but still wondering if anyone in their right mind will give you anything at all for him. Prolly just have to ride the hot streak and hope you pull the plug at the right time IMO :-?

Another win today despite giving up more runs than he has all season. Also, 6k's. I like the dude. It will be interesting to watch his performance from here out and compare that to fangraphs predictions, etc.
