I see him with 200IP - 15W - 3.75 ERA - 1.3 WHIP - 200Ks.
Solid top 30-35 SP - better then the CHW duo and about the same level as Maddux - higher Ks, along with a higher WHIP. I put him a step below Mulder, in the same tier as Pavano, and ahead of Zito.
Basically he's a good #3 SP
These are very similar to my numbers.
14-11, 200 IP 200 K 3.86 ERA, 1.28 WHIP
I also have a big red mark on my cheatsheet because of the gopher balls, but I put less factor into this though becuase of his great K rate. I have him as a top 25 pitcher and right in the middle of my third tier of pitchers.
