Yeah, I think the luster is gone with this guy. No doubt he can bring it, but as others have stated, I think the Dickey we saw in '11 is closer to what we're going to see from this dude going forward. His July has been atrocious. I do expect his K/9 will continue to exceed his K/9 from '11, but his rate stats are not going to remain elite. He'll still be useful, but not the top fantasy pitcher he was for the first half of the season. More like a mid 20's option going forward, and I think that may be a bit optimistic. Low 30's might be more realistic. Sure, it's possible he rekindles the magic of that nasty knuckler we all loved prior to July, but I wouldn't bet on it. I think his lines forward will be somewhere in the ballpark of 6 IP, 5 H's, 3 R's, 3 BB's, 6 K's. Reminds me of Ubaldo circa 2010.
