he's from venezuela, but i'm not sure what that means. all i know is that venezuelans are loud.
a change of scenery could help him, but i think his biggest problem is to stay healthy. he has never had a season with and ERA lower than 4, well, 2003 he had a 2.61ERA, but he only had 5 starts.
he's a sleeper IMO. after a good 2002 season a lot of people were high on him and became disappointed with his injury in 2003. then 2004 he had more health issues, so i think people will try to stay away from him and he might end up being a good late rounds pick for those who didn't forget about armas.
me...i'll prolly be part of those who stay away, but that might change...
