Really seems to wear down as the season goes on. His last three outings this year were all below 90. His 5+ ERA may be a tad unlucky but his underlying numbers say he should still be right around 4. I don't expect him to have an ERA much lower than 4 next season, although the K total will still be good as long as he's healthy.

That seems about right, this years CJ Wilson with a few more K's.
