I like Wang, he seems like a cool guy and his composure on the mound is great. 8 scoreless last night didn't hurt. But unless he's the greatest ground-ball pitcher of all time I don't see him keeping this up.
I don't quite know about being the greatest ground-ball pitcher of all time, BUT he is a ground ball machine. He is reminding me of a very good Hampton, when all he did was induce grounders. I understand the concern about the lack of K's, but unless his grounder-to-fly ball ration drastically changes (and for the last two years it has given no indication of that), he could be a very usefull pitcher, providing the rest of your staff can cover up for the lack of K's.
Word. Fantasy or not, I agree.
