And the same thing could have been said about Victor Santos, Doug Davis, Dan Kolb, Derrick Turnbow, etc before coming to Milwaukee and working with Mike Maddux. Look at their pre-Milwaukee career numbers. Maddux does a great job with these guys, and hopefully he can do the same with Ohka. As such, I believe he is at the very least a guy to keep your eye on.
