You can try riding the hot streak and he'll probably get a few extra wins on that team but don't be shocked if he goes out one day and gives up 7 or 8 runs in 3 innings of work. Look at what happened to a similar pitcher, Kyle Kendrick, in his last start after pitching better then expected in his first 6 games after he was called up (5 runs, 5 1/3 IP). Sure it could last but don't you think h'ed have been hyped in the media if he was really this good?
