Brown had a great year last year and said coming into this year that he hasn't felt this good in years. His back is at 100% (Or at least, relatively 100% for Kevin Brown.) and so long as it holds up and Joe and Mel keep his pitch counts relatively low, look for another strong season with 30-35 outtings, 17-20 wins, 250 or so K and around a 2.50 ERA.
Plus, he's got one of the most dangerous lineups in history hitting for him, and Vazquez pitching after him, so... there isn't as much pressure on him as there was in LA. Everyone tagged Moose the ace of the Yankee staff coming into the year, but it's clear that Brown is the ace. Vazquez's fantastic start not withstanding, the focus is all on Moose and the struggling Yankee lineup (Though it's awake now.) So he's out of the spotlight, off the Ace label and pitching like Kevin Brown does... down right flithy.
