Declining K rate, increasing walk rate, a HR/9 of 1.5 (!!!), and he was lucky on hits per balls in play. His 2nd half was a little better than his 1st, but not as much as his 2nd half era would seem to indicate. On the whole, if you take a look at the whole season's stats, it doesn't add up to an inevitable breakout in 2004. That declining K rate is scary, and potentially points to trouble ahead.
