every time i see this commercial, i think of this thread.
"More is better than less because if stuff is not less... if there's more less stuff then you might, you might want to have some more and your parents just don't let you because there's only a little. We want more. We want more. Like, you really like it. You want more."

I don't think he can sustain that 99.1% LOB!

I've heard people say that you should sell high on him but I actually like a hold on him personally. The BB/9 always gets pointed to but it was just one shaky game in his 2nd start that is driving it. It has been 2 road starts in hitters parks and he has faced some hot offenses so not like this was built around facing the Astros a bunch or something.

His occasional big time inefficiency will lead to a rocky outing here and there, but he's flat out dominant, has allowed just 10 Hits in his 4 starts, and as someone mentioned, may sacrifice a Win here and there because he only lasts 5 innings due to said inefficiency. He's gone out and pitched great and he wasn't facing the Astros and Padres. It would take quite a bit for me to trade a guy who may very well be coming right into his own and grasping for his massive ceiling after a 2012 2nd half ERA of 3.01 with a 1.21 WHIP and K/9 north of 9. The key with him is limiting HR, which he did the latter part of last season, and has continued thus far, allowing just 2 over 26 IP.
