In 06 he had a 4.58 FIP with a K/9 of 8.18 (which I’d say is somewhere around #4 quality numbers), then in 07 he had a 4.01 FIP with 7.66 K/9 in 208 IP. That’s 3rd starter territory, which is a pretty big compliment. What happened after that is nothing that could have been foretold from seeing his success in AA, but came as much from between his ears as it did his shoulder.

Love any reason for optimism…..I have heard this theory before about succeeding in AA can often times lead to success in the Majors (save for Ian Snell), but I was wondering if you could shine some light on this for me. Clearly theres no clear cut formula and I understand that, but there seems to be a belief about succeeding at AA/majors
