I'm not really down with that
2003 shouldn't count... people were smacking the ball all over off of him. He didn't have a chance to walk anybody
But look at the small change from 2000-2002, and then a giant leap in 2004. That's not a normal progression. Add the fact that he's going back to the AL.... his BB's should be at least 2 per 9 IP IMO. Checking on my projecitons... I actually have him down for exactly 2 BB/9.
