He's looked good this year - at least in my Yahoo boxscores, I haven't seen him pitch this year.

Any chance we'll see this continue and he'll put up numbers similar to 2002 when he went 21-8 with a 2.58 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP?

New league, Dodger Stadium, it's all got me thinking, sell high or ride the wave.

Ride the wave of a good end of the rotation guy. Don't expect Cy Young numbers though.

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

I don't expect his numbers to continue to be quite as good, but I'm riding the wave. B-)

I'm always liked Derek Lowe, that is why I was disappointed to see him decline like he has. But after listening to a number of his games, besides his last outing, it looks like everyone has pretty high expectations, as do I.

He's a solid pitcher, so you know the talent is there, he has Dodger Stadium to protect him, and best of all the Dodgers are putting up offensive numbers. Will this all keep up?.. Who knows, but I'm optimistic. ;-D

In other words, ride the wave...
