Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
i thought highly of him last year, but this year i thought he turned the corner and was an ace, on par with chris sale and brandon beachy. the 1st 3 months, his first 14 starts he had no bad games, and maybe only 2 average games, most were gems. he allowed 4 hrs and had a good k rate. his only problem has been walks, and he was good all year. june 27th was the first start he gave up more than 3 er (he gave up 4) to philly, then had 2 great games after that.... since the all star break hes had 3 terrible starts, giving up walks and hrs including the cubs. is this just a glitch, or is he simply not a good pitcher like i thought? trade now or hold on?
