It's utterly ridiculous to try and analyze a pitcher's stats over 3 games. Also, so what if he faced STL twice? They saw him back to back and still only scored two runs against him. That means more to me than his BABIP or WHIP at this stage of the season. He'll be a top pitcher this year regardless of support from his team.

His Whip after pitching those 4 games is 1.39 with a BAA .271 He has been very lucky that his ERA is not much higher.
I'm not a believer at all in second year pitchers. I know this guy does have great natural ability and I've witnessed this in the 4-5 games I've seen him pitch in. He will have a great k/9 but I wouldn't expect any improvment on his ERA and Whip ratios from 2007.
You are a funny guy NZ Eff. You definitely should get a jester mask.
