Norm for me would be the track record of just about every MLB guy with his type of stuff. I'd eat my shoe if he finishes '08 with a sub 3.50 ERA....with that said I don't think he is awful by any means....I just expect those numbers to drop down closer to a 4 ERA and closer to a 1.25 WHIP with still poor SO totals. Don't get me wrong, I love that Bannister is on the Royals and on a couple of my fantasy teams but I'm not expecting these numbers out of him next year or for his career. With that said....PLEASE prove me wrong Bannister, PLEASE!!!
