He's been looking good so far. I have my eye on him. Personally though, I don't really see him keeping it up. I think he's too much of a soft tosser to have much long-term success in the AL East. Without a real heater (his fastball tops out at like 88 mph I think), AL hitters will probably figure him out and then klablooey. He also plays in a pretty tough pitchers park where a lot of long fly balls turn into homers.
While normally I would say that pitching well against the Yanks is a good sign, the Yanks have been pretty awful so far and could have made a AAA player look like Cy Young.
I think he'll have a nice ride, and maybe for longer than I think, but in the end I just don't think he has the stuff to make it in the slugger-heavy AL East.
