His career splits don't look too good after comparing his 1st halves and 2nd halves. 3.53 ERA and 1.25 WHIP before the ASB and 4.26 ERA and 1.37 WHIP afterwards. Although, he has pitched very well this year with only one bad game. In 7 out of 8 starts this year, he has given up 3 earned runs or less. It's a shame he only has a 1-3 record to show for it.

I wouldn't go that far. He has been solid this year but his strikeout rate is down compared to his past seasons. 203 K's in 204 innings in 2002. 21 K's in 23 innings last year. This year, only 35 K's in 45 innings. Nonetheless, still solid

Like I've said before, I'm pretty much expecting a Kerry Wood 2000 season from him.
