Once he regains his control (meaning less walks, more K's, lower WHIP, less HR's, all essentailly leading to a lower ERA and more wins), I think he'll have around a 1.25 WHIP, 200+ K's, and 20 wins aren't out of the question. I was prediting a more modest number like 15-17, but with the way he's pitched so far and still managing to win both starts, I don't see 20 as improbable.

Yes. It's a good sign that even when he doesn't pitch good, he'll have a shot at getting wins. But I think he'll be better than he showed today. His control was obviously off, and when that gets back on track, I think he'll lower his WHIP to around 1.25, and get around 8 K/9. ERA is a craps shoot, so it could be anywhere. WHIP is much more consistent and a good indicator of how good a pitcher is, along with K/9. I'll be happy if everybody writes him off after 2 starts. These are the people who traded Roy Halladay for Kevin Brown. 2 starts is too early to come to conclusions about anybody, but it's nice to see people are using it as evidence Loaiza will flop.
