That, or he just doesnt have the ability to K guys.
I dont think his numbers this year from both AAA and MLB are lying.
2009: 11.01 k/9
2010: 11.19 k/9
2011: 9.4 k/9
2012: 9.3 k/9
his mlb numbers aren't lying, but the #'s from the prior 4 years are??
450 IP is a much larger sample size than 18 IP..... I still think he can up his mlb k/9 at least over 7 over the next five years or so
If you believe that his 4.0 k/9 over an entire three games is going to be the best predictor of his career k/9 than I feel we will never agree. Too small a sample size for me. Especially for someone only 23 yrs old with many years till his prime. I don't know about you, but I'm definitely holding onto him in my dynasty league. I see a bright future ahead in the next few years
