While he has had an inconsistent 2011 compared to 2010, he still has an upside to be a #4 or #5 starter in the bigs. And while this is being discussed why is it that Atlanta hits on their pitching draft choices so often. Instead of sending scouts out, it might be better to put money into bugging the Atlanta draft meetings.
