this guy is a free agent, and i'm liking his numbers so far... but 4 strikeouts in 3 starts? how the heck does this guy have 3 wins, a 2.16 ERA, and a .90 WHIP with only 4k?

methinks harry potter has hit the majors.

yeah, i know what you mean. we're in an nl-only league with 10 owners, so the pickings are so slim he the best available FA out there. I think you have to assume it won't last. Having said that, he's had 3 realy good starts (including at home in colorado against the ridiculously good Cardinals). I think the other two were in Arizona and wherever the Expos are now.

Last years his number weren't so hot, but I think he had a nice WHIP the year before...

My guess is it won't last. I'll probably pick him up but immediately try to trade him.

Good luck!

i picked him up. he starting today against SD AT COORS. kinda of sucks for him because he has to pitch in COORS and probably will give up a few more runs. but this is his realt test to see how good he is. im startin him today, i think he can do good.
