I don't quite understand this. He has always had the talent but was never able to put it together, mostly cause of injuries. Granted expecting a repeat of this year is a bad idea but his 2004 year shows that he isn't a fluke.
he's not even close to being a fluke. i'd be more scared about drafting dontrelle willis than carpenter next year. he's the sure thing. even in 04 he had a great season, and that was after he was out all 03.
his august and september in 04 look like
25.1IP 27K 2.13ERA 0.97WHIP
22.1IP 18K 2.42ERA 1.07WHIP
pretty impressive, huh?
