Those are decent fantasy numbers for any pitcher but VERY promising for a 22-year old prospect. In the second half, he threw for a 3.7 ERA and 1.10 WHIP. He was incredible in September (2.53 and 1.05). In spring training, he has been tearing it up, showing great velocity, control, and movement. He's even got a new change-up that looks good. Plus, as far as I can tell, he's got no injury risks (blisters, elbows, alien parasites) that can derail a young pitcher.
The bottom line is that all signs point to an emerging young pitcher who is consolidating his skills. He's ready for a breakout. Maybe not in 2005, but VERY soon.

I see no reason to own him given the inflated value so many people have for him. Keeper leagues are a different story but I'd still probably trade him because of his perceived value right now.
Any reason you feel this? The stats would show otherwise, he had better control and better numbers overall in the 2nd half. He seems primed to improve greatly on his 04 numbers. Plus he gets a lot of Ks.
Tavish wrote:His second half is why he is getting overrated. He did great against two of the worst offenses in the league who were throwing AA hitters out there. Even during his "hot" stretch when he went against decent offensive clubs he had major problems.
