He's obviously going to be a little overhyped being in New York, but he could just as easily be a [I can't even remember his name; that Cardinals pitcher that one day just couldn't throw a strike anymore] as he could be a worthless, perennial DL candidate like Prior/Wood.
Actions speak louder than words; I look forward to seeing him pitch, but he's not nearly as hyped up, even this year, as Jered Weaver, Chad Billingsley, Liriano or Verlander.
He's actually under-hyper (if that's a word). He gets no where near as much praise as he should - he's got stuff that will probably dominate right away. Outside of Liriano, Verlander, and King, this guy will be the best young pitcher making his debut this year. I must say I am very excited to see this kid pitch this weekend.
