I picked this guy up in late June and all he has done is dominate. He pitches in a park that favors the pitchers, walks very few, and has been averaging over 8 K's per 9. I've also read reports that his 92-94 mph gas is sneaky fast, as it seems like its 98 because he hides the ball so well. His hammer is also a legimate strikeout pitch.
So...is Ricky's hot streak a flash in the pan or a sign of things to come.
Do you see him capable of putting up a 200 inning, 3.50 ERA, 180 K, 1.25 WHIP season in 2009?
